Help make Velma's Christmas wish come true by offering more support to stroke-affected families
Velma's unique Christmas wish is for her dad to get better. Her only desire this holiday season is for her father, Alex, to recover from a stroke that dramatically altered their family life. They were fortunate to have the assistance of Lydia, a stroke coordinator, who guided them through that challenging first Christmas.
Hear from Alex and his family in this video where he tells his family's story of stroke.
Immediate action is needed, as many families are not as fortunate as ours. There's currently a shortage of skilled stroke coordinators like Lydia, who provide crucial emotional and practical support to families going through the same ordeal.
By donating today, you could help support more stroke coordinators. Your generous contribution can support families grappling with the aftermath of a stroke, offering them a brighter festive season.
*Your donations will help to fund vital work – such as research projects, the Stroke Helpline and support groups – and help stroke survivors and their families rebuild their lives.
