The pandemic has hit stroke research hard. We need your help to save it.
Stroke strikes every five minutes in the UK and is a leading cause of adult disability. The Stroke Association is the only UK charity that focuses exclusively on stroke research, but the pandemic has cut our research budget in half, putting vital improvements in treatment and care at risk.
Stroke research is already chronically underfunded and this cut in budget will have a catastrophic effect on stroke research, setting the field back years.
Lindiwe had her stroke at just 24. Watch her story and hear why Dr. Emma Patchwood’s research is so critical for stroke survivors like Lindiwe.
With the right support and a ton of courage and determination, people like Lindiwe can rebuild their lives after stroke. Thanks to breakthroughs in stroke research, many people have been spared the most devastating effects of stroke and benefitted from innovative treatments and care.
Please donate today to help save stroke research, so we can prevent more deaths from stroke and improve recoveries.
