Tim Glendinning Memorial Fund

Tim Glendinning was popular, intelligent, courageous and loyal - a gentleman from top-to-toe. He was bold, kind, fun and loved his close-knit family.

But behind this engaging, articulate young man was a life turned upside down by stroke.

Stroke taunted him for many long years. It crept back time and time again when it was least expected – seven strokes in 17 years. Each time Tim’s life seemed back on track, stroke cruelly knocked him down again.

Tim sadly passed away on 27 April 2017. This time his body could no longer fight the impact of stroke.

Bruce and Lynette Glendinning, Tim’s parents, remember fondly, “He was a beautiful soul with a big heart. Someone who spent his life interested in the world around him.”

With heavy hearts, Bruce, Lynette and Matthew wish to celebrate their beloved son and brother Tim, by establishing a memorial research fund in his name – Tim Glendinning Memorial Fund for Young Adult Stroke.

Their mission is to raise awareness of stroke and to end the stigma surrounding the disease. Through research, they want doors to remain open for other young stroke survivors and support is provided to their families. They want to make sure that young stroke survivors don’t feel out of place and alone.

We want other young stroke survivors and their families to have someone to turn to,” said Bruce and Lynette.

Your gift can help young adult stroke survivors and their families. Please consider making a donation towards the Tim Glendinning Memorial Fund for Young Adult Stroke.
