We need your support to help bring hope and put the specialist care of a Stoke Foundation worker alongside stroke survivors through one of our vital recovery programs.

Sometimes these supports are literally a lifeline to stroke survivors and their families. The tools, information, community and connection they offer can be the sound of hope itself!

With your donation today, we can stand together with stroke survivors to help them on their journey of recovery after stroke.

Please give the gift of hope and help fight for life after stroke.

Investment in stroke research saved Karen’s life

You don't often hear the words “endovascular thrombectomy”, but this incredible Australian innovation saved Karen’s life.

When Karen Beaton suffered a stroke on New Year’s Eve 2016, she was lucky that her husband Paul knew the F.A.S.T. signs of stroke (Face. Arms. Speech. Time) and called 000 straight away. The dispatcher waited on the line until paramedics arrived. 

With her life hanging in the balance, Karen needed immediate treatment to survive. Thankfully, the latest innovations in stroke treatment gave her the best possible chance. Fast access to the latest treatment and best practice stroke care saved Karen’s life. Read more about Karen’s incredible story. Or to make a donation to the next breakthrough in stroke research

Thank you for standing with us in the fight against stroke

2017 has been an exciting year at the Stroke Foundation – Australia’s First Stroke Ambulance hit the road, we delivered more than 63,000 health checks as part of Australia’s Biggest Blood Pressure Check, we published the No Postcode Untouched report into stroke in Australia, finalised new clinical guidelines for stroke management, completed a new acute stroke audit and so much more.

The most important thing is that it’s all been made possible by the contributions of our amazing supporters. Thank you. We’re so grateful. Your support has played a vital role in helping the Stroke Foundation pursue our mission to prevent stroke, save lives and enhance recovery stroke.
