This November, I’m taking part in Stroke Foundation’s Stride4Stroke to help prevent, treat and beat stroke!
In September 2020 my dad had a stroke unexpectedly. No signs. No symptoms.
It occurred at dinner celebrating Lillie’s 17th birthday. Dad being his usual talkative self, making those typical jokes that no one finds funny but him, and laughing with us all arguing over who pays for the entrees, it was minutes after waiting in line when it happened.
Witnessing the blank face he had given me. Not responsive (if it was, very minimal and slurred), weak in the arms, and I could see how scared he was in his eyes. Luckily Christie recognised these signs and knew straight away that he was having a stroke.
“FAST” REMEMBER IT.
Please get behind me and my family in supporting and donating in the Stroke Foundation.
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.
I have picked my Stride4Stroke activity goal and I’m ready to go!
Please support my Stride4Stroke challenge with a donation today.
Your donation will help the Stroke Foundation support those affected right now and fund research to help prevent stroke, save lives and enhance recovery. Thank you.
