I’m taking on the challenge of Stride4Stroke and raising funds for Stroke Foundation!

Hi there, I'm taking on the challenge of Stride4Stroke and raising funds for Stroke Foundation to help prevent stroke, save lives and enhance recovery.

On 23rd July 2023 I lost my husband of 23 years at the age of 40.  Rhyan fought for the last 2.5 years to get his life back on track after having his first stroke in January 2021 and was doing great.  He had lost 75 kgs and was running 2-3 times a week anything up to 10 k's each run.   On the 13th July I took him into our local ED in WA thinking he had Vertigo only to be told 6 hours later that he had another clot in his brain and was rushed into theatre.... after what was not a successful operation, Rhyan never woke up and we lost him 10 days later, leaving behind 2 daughters Summer (15) and Chloe (12) wife, Mother and Sister.  

For those of you that knew Rhyan, he brought a smile to everyone's face and was always the life of the party and he is being sadly missed every day. 

Stroke is one of Australia's biggest killers and there is one stroke every 19 minutes, even though more than 80% of strokes can be prevented? 

Stroke doesn't discriminate; it affects anyone, anytime, even unborn babies. It claims more lives than breast cancer in women and prostate cancer in men. Even more distressing, around 600 Australian children experience stroke each year.

Your support can make a significant difference, and I kindly ask you to help me reach my fundraising goal by making a donation. It only takes a minute, and any amount you can give, no matter how large or small, will go a long way in supporting Stroke Foundation's vision of a world free from disability and suffering caused by stroke.


With your generosity, the Stroke Foundation will be able to:


Prevent Stroke: By empowering a greater proportion of adult Australians to recognize the modifiable risk factors for stroke, we can increase their chances of preventing stroke and living healthier lives.


Save Lives: Your support will enable hospitals and healthcare providers across Australia to enhance their capabilities in stroke care and rehabilitation services, ultimately saving more lives.


Enhance Recovery: By reaching out to those affected by stroke, the Stroke Foundation ensures that more Australians can access reliable information, resources, and essential post-stroke support, promoting a better recovery journey for stroke survivors.


Your donation will directly contribute to these critical initiatives, bringing hope, assistance, and improved outcomes to stroke survivors and their families.


Thank you for your support. Your generosity means a lot to me.

My Updates

Day 11

Over the last few days we have been doing our stride 4 stroke in one very cold England but still doing our daily walks with family and friends.

Day 4

Today we did our weekly Park Run. It was very hot but we all had loads of fun as always. 
Mentioned to them all that the girls and I were doing the Stride4stroke so fingers crossed some more donations. 

2nd days walking Rhyans favourite walk

First days walk done.

Got up an hour earlier this morning to do my 30 minute walk.  The dogs and I felt good being up and out at 6.30am when we are all normally fast asleep.  

Lets hope I can keep it up for the month lol 

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.
