I'm fundraising to prevent, treat and beat stroke!
I'm raising funds and awareness for Stroke Foundation to help prevent, treat and beat stroke.
I never anticipated at the age of 23 I would be fighting for my life as I suffered a Vertebral Artery dissection causing a major CVA. I lost the vision in my right eye, use of my right arm, I could not talk or walk properly. It took months to recover and train myself to write, type, walk and talk properly again. I still suffer significant nerve pain everyday (picture pins and needles and the pressure feeling of a cut-off blood supply) which fluctuates depending on my bodies level of exhaustion.
Stroke attacks the brain, the human control centre, changing lives in an instant. It can happen to anyone, at any age and affects everyone differently.
Few people will think about stroke until it touches their life.
It’s estimated more than 27,400 people will have a stroke in Australia for the first time in 2022, equating to one stroke every nineteen minutes.
Today, there are over 445,000 people in our community whose lives have been changed by stroke and their number is growing.
Stroke Foundation is a national charity that partners with the community to prevent stroke, save lives and enhance recovery.
With your support, Stroke Foundation can provide support to those affected right now and fund research to fight stroke.
Join me today in making a difference to stroke prevention, treatment and care.
