Give in celebration

We do live in a lucky country and most of us get to a point in our lives where we don’t really need gifts. But if you are having a celebration, you know that your loved ones will want to share that celebration with a gift.

Why not ask for your gift to go towards making a difference to stroke survivors or to preventing stroke in Australia. It’s as simple as letting your family and friends know that, instead of a gift, to make a donation to fight stroke. We guarantee they will be inspired by your thoughtfulness and generosity.

It might be a second wedding, a milestone birthday, an anniversary or perhaps you just feel that someone recovering from stroke would benefit from your gifts. You might have a personal connection to stroke or you might just like to help someone out.

It’s easy to do, just click on the link below.

Get inspired

On 18th March 2012 Nance’s husband Les noticed that her speech was slurry and she was having trouble standing up straight, he called an ambulance and told them that he believed that she was having a stroke, and he was right. 

Les explains “the Doctor informed me that Nance was very sick and he didn't think she could and or would recover. 

Nance spent sixteen days at Box Hill Hospital Stroke Unit and was moved to the Peter James Centre for rehab, she had many visits from family and friends which the family feel contributed to her recovery.”
