We’re taking part in the Stroke Foundation’s Stride4Stroke to help Fight Stroke!
In June this year, our family was rocked to the core after Dad (Kenny Marto) suffered a stroke. Dad has since suffered another 3 strokes, which have all affected him in different ways. He has had to learn to walk again, he is undergoing intense speech therapy and he has issues with his peripheral vision. He could be forgiven for wanting to give up, but Dad has fought back each time and been an absolute battler.
Dad has spent approximately 15 days home since the 18th of June, shuffling between hospital and rehab trying to work out the cause of his strokes and treating the damage each time another hits.
Sadly, 1 in 6 people will have a stroke in their lifetime. 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. But stroke’s impact doesn’t need to be this great, research indicates that around 80 percent of strokes are preventable. So, I need your help to fight stroke. It’s going to be a challenge, but it’s nothing compared to those who are impacted by stroke.
Please sponsor me today to support me and together we can fight stroke! Your donation will help the Stroke Foundation support those affected right now and fund research to help prevent stroke, save lives and enhance recovery.
