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. As you all know our lives changed forever on August 24 2013 when Stephen at the age of 48 had a massive stroke that was made even worse by our rural location. It took us too long to get to a stroke unit and to this day we continue to fight to get better, quicker treatment times for rural and regional Australians.
In 2020 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.
With your support, the Stroke Foundation can provide stroke researchers with the funding they need to find the next game changer in stroke.
