Aija's Story


Having had a stroke 25 years ago, Aija understands how stroke can change lives quickly. It caused great difficulty in Aija’s life as she had to leave work, sell her home and relocate. “I experienced crying fits in hospital. The right side of my body was also affected as well as my speech”.

Aija’s experience with stroke has inspired her to thoughtfully leave a gift in her Will to the Stroke Foundation. She hopes that her gift will contribute to stroke research and help improve stroke treatment and care.

“I want to stop the suffering caused to stroke survivors and their families”.

Aija’s generous gift of $10,000 will help to continue the fight against stroke and support the lifesaving work of the Stroke Foundation.
