It wasn't until Lisa's doctor told her to go to the Emergency Department, that she realised the severity of her condition.

Scans confirmed a stroke, and Lisa's world was turned upside down.

Shockingly, after only a week in hospital, Lisa was discharged with no follow up or rehabilitation mentioned.

"I had no knowledge or understanding of what had happened to me, or what was ahead of me."

This is why our services - like StrokeLine - are so important. But worryingly, StrokeLine is at risk.
