TIM GLENDINNING MEMORIAL FUND
About the Tim Glendinning Memorial Fund
The Tim Glendinning Memorial Fund for Young Adult Stroke has been thoughtfully established by the Glendinning family to improve the lives of young adults affected by stroke. It has been created to commemorate the memory of Tim and make a positive difference to young Australian stroke survivors.
The fund will:
- Provide support and advice to young adult stroke survivors and their families
- Improve the environments in which young adult stroke survivors are provided care
- Support research into undiagnosed stroke causes
- Fight stigma that young adults may feel after stroke
How will the Memorial Fund be managed?
The Tim Glendinning Memorial Fund for Young Adult Stroke is administered as part of the Stroke Foundation's endowment fund and has been established with a generous endowment from the Glendinning family. The family will be represented on the management committee for the fund.
The Stroke Foundation is a national charity that partners with the community to prevent, treat and beat stroke. We stand alongside stroke survivors and their families, healthcare professionals and researchers. We build community awareness and foster new thinking. We support survivors on their journey to live the best possible life after stroke.
The goal is for the fund to continue benefiting young adults affected by stroke and finding ways to prevent stroke from happening long into the future. The Glendinning family hope to continue raising funds from Tim’s family, friends and the Australian public to build upon their initial endowment gift.
How will your support help young adult stroke survivors?
Stroke is largely preventable, it can be treated and we believe it can be beaten. Research holds the key.
Contributions to the Tim Glendinning Memorial Fund for Young Adult Stroke will support research to deliver a deeper understanding of stroke in young adults.
The results of this research will, over time, lead to better diagnosis, treatment and support for young adult stroke survivors. Effective research takes time, perseverance and a great deal of funding. However, the rewards when those breakthroughs come will benefit generation after generation.
You can help to make a difference to the lives of young adult stroke survivors and their families.
Please consider supporting the Tim Glendinning Memorial Fund for Young Adult Stroke and stop stroke from devastating more families.
