Dennis has worked in the Toowoomba Base Hospital for many years. He has witnessed firsthand what a devastating effect stroke can have on people and on those closest to them.
“It is heart-breaking to see people you know in such a dreadful state after they have had a stroke”, he told us. Tragically, Dennis lost his own father to a stroke. He wasn’t able to say goodbye to his Dad as he didn’t regain consciousness before he passed away.
Dennis decided to take action by asking his solicitor to include a gift to the Stroke Foundation in his Will. “I hope that one day we can overcome stroke with more research, better education and increased awareness.”
