“What caused my stroke?”

Five years after her stroke, Alanna is still waiting for answers.

“Not knowing why I had a stroke… You just worry. You constantly worry.”

As a young mum with two children, she has a whole life ahead of her.

But Alanna has a fear of what her future holds when the cause of her stroke remains unknown.

Your gift today could fund cutting-edge stroke research and end Alanna’s fear of tomorrow.

“It happened just like that. No warning. Nothing,” Alanna remembers. “I just felt something go in my head and then I couldn’t talk.”

Her husband, Andrew, quickly rang 000 and she was rushed to the hospital.

But Alanna waited another three long days before an MRI confirmed her stroke.

Even worse, it’s been five years since her stroke and the cause of her stroke still remains unknown.
