I’m taking part in Stride4Stroke to help prevent, treat and beat stroke, and support my beautiful Mum!
In October 2020, our mum Kate suffered a serious stroke that changed her life and saw the left side of her body become paralysed, while also inflict mental fatigue. Through utter strength and resilience, along with the support and dedication from physios, OTs, doctors, nurses and family/friends around her; she has overcome hurdles to get back on her feet and slowly but surely learn to walk again, meanwhile transition back into some normal routines of her life.
Stroke is the leading cause of disability in Australia. It can happen to anyone, and does not discriminate on age.
Across November, my sister Steph and I will be hoping to clock up over 40 hours of running, in a bid to raise money for the Stroke Foundation.
Please join us in the fight to help prevent, treat and beat Stroke, so that you and your loved ones can avoid or be best prepared and cared for should it arise.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank every single individual that has helped my mum and our family along the journey since she suffered her stroke. We can't thank you all enough for the love and care you have shown us.
So far I have helped Stroke Foundation deliver…
Advice and support from a health professional on StrokeLine
Stroke recovery packs to 3 survivors of stroke.
Training to a StrokeSafe volunteer to deliver community talks.
Funding to stroke researchers to find the next game-changer in stroke.
