Does having stroke at young age shorten your life span ?

Does having a stroke at a young age shorten your life? My son who is now 36 years old suffered a stroke last year which left him with no movement in his left arm and he has to use a cane to walk with. He seems very tired al the time even though this happened in May of 2011. He also had to have his aortic valve replaced.
