I'm fundraising to prevent, treat and beat stroke!
The glorious Maria Venuti AM is using her LXXX 80th birthday to raise money and awareness of stroke by doing what she does best, putting on a show.
It will be the first time that Maria has sung on the big stage since her stroke in 2016.
Her daughter and carer, Bianca says, "Mum has been working really hard with a music therapist to be ready for the show. While she struggles with speech since her stroke, singing is controlled by a different part of the brain, which is quite amazing.
Mum is a born performer, and it is wonderful to see her face light up when she belts out a tune."
