Thank you for sending in your donations and sponsorship from your Stream for Stroke.
Every five minutes, stroke destroys lives. Depending on which part of the brain is affected, you may suddenly face communication and physical difficulties, or you may find that your emotions and personality are affected. The impact of a stroke can be completely life-altering, but so can the impact of your help.
- £56 could cover the costs of setting up a new volunteer, so they are ready to support voluntary groups in their community.
- £125 could help pay for research into new stroke treatments, as we did with thrombolysis - a clot-busting drug that returns the blood supply to the brain that has transformed the outcomes of stroke survivors who have received it.
- £500 could help pay for a five-year Senior Lectureship Award, a critical research role that facilitates life-changing discoveries to prevent and treat stroke.
- £4,000 could pay for engaging videos to be developed for My Stroke Guide for one year, enabling users to give and get vital support.
With your support, we can provide vital services to help stroke survivors rebuild their lives during this difficult time. Thank you.
