Sylvia left a gift in her Will to help rebuild lives

The first we knew of Sylvia was when we received notification of the gift she’d left us in her Will. Shortly after, a beautiful story of a much-loved woman began to unfurl.

Friends remembered Sylvia’s kind heart and her wish to help others. She spent part of her adult life caring for her mother, and developed a passion for medicine.

Becoming a medical secretary was her next step and, in the course of her career, she discovered the devastating impact a stroke could have on people and their families. 

Seeing that stroke research and treatment were vastly under-funded, Sylvia decided to remember the Stroke Association in her Will. 

Sylvia’s generous gift has helped to rebuild lives. She’s supported research to prevent and treat stroke, and she’s helped care for survivors. 

Leaving a legacy

Without legacy gifts from our supporters, we wouldn’t be here to help rebuild the lives of tens of thousands of stroke survivors and their families. Each year, legacies make up nearly half of all donations we receive.
