First Hour

First hour

After a stroke every second counts - each second increases the amount of damage to the brain. The first minutes and hours are crucial.

There are 50,000 strokes in Australia each year and more than 440,000 people living with the effects of stroke. 

You can help turn this around for World Stroke Day, 29th October - and help raise stroke awareness in your workplace. Giving just one hour of your wage, or a donation of your choice helps to deliver stroke awareness education and life saving health checks. It also assists us to provide support and care to stroke survivors and their families after a stroke.
