This November, I’m taking part in Stroke Foundation’s Stride4Stroke to help prevent, treat and beat stroke!

“Danielle, you need to come downstairs, we think Dad’s having a stroke” - words I’ll never forget, words that changed my world in an instant. 

In September 2020, my energetic, “happy go lucky”, strong & fit husband had a stroke. There was no warning, one minute he was walking downstairs to order dinner & the next, he couldn’t talk. Thankfully, Christie was able to recognise the signs & symptoms of stroke & applied the FAST acronym. An ambulance was called & he was transported to hospital & thrombolysed within a couple of hours of the onset of his first symptoms. He has made a remarkable recovery to date & I have no doubt that was due to the fast thinking of Christie & the speed with which he was treated. In short, Christie saved his life that night. 

As a family, we are participating in Stride4Stroke this November to help raise awareness about the signs of stroke as well as helping to raise funds for the Stroke Foundation who support those affected right now & fund research to help prevent stroke, save lives and enhance recovery. 

In Australia, one stroke occurs every 9 minutes.

It is one of Australia's biggest killers, killing more women than breast cancer and more men than prostate cancer.

Stroke attacks the brain, the human control centre, changing lives in an instant. The impact of stroke can be devastating for the individual and the family. However, the impact of stroke can be prevented, with research indicating that around 80 percent of strokes are preventable.

We have picked our Stride4Stroke activity goal and are ready to go! Please support our Stride4Stroke challenge with a donation today. 

And please remember the FAST acronym - it could save a life:

F - Face: Check their face, has their mouth drooped?

A - Arms: Can they lift both arms?

S - Speech: Is their speech slurred? Do they understand you?

T - Time: Strokes are a time critical event, thrombolysis treatment needs be administered within 4 hours of the onset of symptoms for the best chance of recovery. 

If you see any of these signs call “000” immediately.
