I'm fundraising to prevent, treat and beat stroke!
I went back and forth about whether or not to do this but the reasons not to are outweighed by those in favour of it.
Turning 40 this year highlighted just how young my Mum was when,
at just 45, she suffered life altering strokes.
Last year, I spoke at an event for work to highlight the broad impact that stroke has, both for the stroke survivor and their family.
A colleague recorded my speech and, if you’ve got a spare ten minutes, I’d like to ask you to watch it.
It’s a deeply personal story and I get emotional throughout but my reason for sharing it is to also ask for your support.
This year there will be almost 56,000 new and recurrent strokes, that is one stroke every 9 minutes.
Stroke is one of Australia's biggest killers and a leading cause of disability. It kills more women than breast cancer and more men than prostate cancer.
If you can spare anything to help me achieve my goal of $500 to support Stroke Foundation Australia, it would mean more than I can express.
Thanks in advance,
Let’s do this!Tuesday 25th Aug
