Four-time Olympic sprint champion Michael Johnson had a stroke at just 50 years old. In peak physical health, a stroke was the last thing on his mind as he completed his daily workout. 

He credits advancements in research, coupled with his own focus and determination, as key to his recovery: “Research drives improvement in stroke treatment and care, so more people like me can rebuild their lives. Without research, I wouldn’t have been able to make anywhere near the recovery I have.”

We urgently need your support. The pandemic has cut our research budget in half, putting at risk vital projects that could help save and rebuild lives after stroke. Please make a donation if you can.
