Stroke is one of Australia's biggest killers
Stroke Foundation is committed to a world free from disability and suffering caused by stroke.
Stroke is one of Australia's biggest killers, with one stroke occuring every 19 minutes. Stroke doesn't discriminate; it affects anyone, anytime, even unborn babies. It claims more lives than breast cancer in women and prostate cancer in men. Even more heart-wrenching, around 600 Australian children experience stroke each year.
Every dollar you raise will take Stroke Foundation one step closer to preventing stroke, saving lives and enhancing recovery for more Australians.
