I have signed up to the Towel Challenge
I have signed up to the Towel Challenge to have a bit of fun and to raise awareness and funds to prevent, treat and beat stroke.
In 2020 there will be almost 56,000 new and recurrent strokes, that is one stroke every 9 minutes.
My husband lost his Grandma to a stroke. My sister in law recently lost her aunt whilst her uncle continues to live with the long lasting effect of his own stroke. My friend’s hilarious and highly energetic Dad had his life changed in an instant from his recent stroke, and is currently going through months of rehab as a result. We all know someone who has been affected by this unforgiving medical condition. We see how unfair it can be.
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.
With your support, the Stroke Foundation can provide stroke researchers with the funding they need to find the next game changer in stroke. Please help if you can.
