Exercise reduces the damage done by a stroke?

Maybe. It is one more reason to train anyway.

My Dad has had a series of strokes recently and so I am interested in anything that might limit damage.

Exercise Preconditioning Reduces Neuronal Apoptosis in Stroke by Up-regulating HSP-70 (HSP-72) and ERK 1/2.

Exercise preconditioning induces neuroprotection after stroke......Our results indicate that exercise diminishes neuronal injury in stroke by up-regulating HSP-70 and ERK 1/2.

I see this as 30 minutes on a treadmill. Any studies you are aware of pertaining to strength training with similar neuroprotective results?
