When Greg awoke feeling pinned to his bed, he had a fleeting thought it might be a stroke but instead of urgently rushing to hospital he went back to sleep, passing the symptoms off as a virus.
The following day Greg did go to hospital, but at first his stroke was not diagnosed. Greg went home from hospital returning again the next day thinking something was not right.
When Greg’s stroke was finally diagnosed it was more than 24 hours since he was last seen well. It was too late for time-critical stroke treatment. The focus was now on maximising his recovery. Read about Greg’s amazing story here or give now to help put an end to the suffering caused by stroke.
F.A.S.T. action saves lives
When Felix collapsed, he feared he may be having a stroke. But with his body paralysed, he wasn’t able to tell anyone.
Felix remembers, “I thought, ‘That’s the end of me’.”
Thankfully his wife, Ina, also suspected a stroke and called triple zero straight away. Thanks to gifts from Stroke Foundation supporters just like you, the mobile stroke unit – with the innovative CT scanner on board – arrived at their home. Read more about Felix’s story here.
For stroke survivors like Felix and his wife Ina, knowing the signs of stroke and taking F.A.S.T. action meant that Felix was able to access treatment quickly – dramatically hanging his outcome and saving his life.

Kids have strokes too
Join us today to help fight childhood stroke.
With your support we’ll increase awareness of childhood stroke, improve treatment and care and provide better support to families.
Together we can bring a brighter future to children and families impacted by childhood stroke.
Around 500 strokes will be experienced by infants and children in Australia each year. While the numbers are small, the impact can be devastating and life-long for families.
Stroke Foundation engages and collaborates with the Little Stroke Warriors support group to determine the needs for Australian families impacted by childhood stroke.
Help keep StrokeLine alive
