As many of you are already aware, on October 23, 2012 my life was changed forever as I experienced a severe brain aneurysm – also known as a hemorrhagic stroke. My independence and career were taken from me followed by my dreams of the future and overall outlook on life. But no more! I have done an exhaustive amount of therapies, 40 dives in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber, acupuncture and am currently maintaining by doing personal training at the YMCA. I am moving on to new challenges and have decided that I needed to connect with others who are walking in my shoes to encourage, be encouraged and make new friends.
I am raising awareness and celebrating stroke survivors at the Raleigh Comeback Trail 5K - a charity event that supports the National Stroke Association. This 5K walk/fun-run empowers stroke survivors and caregivers to #ComebackStrong. I have set a fundraising goal to support the stroke rehabilitation and prevention efforts of the National Stroke Association.
Please support me, and the 7 million stroke survivors in the United Sates, by making a donation today. Together, we can empower survivors and caregivers as they come back strong from stroke.
Did you know?
- Stroke is the 5th leading cause of death in the U.S. & a leading cause of adult disability.
- Every 40 seconds someone in the U.S. experiences a stroke.
- Every 4 minutes someone in the U.S. dies from a stroke.
- Stroke kills two times more women than breast cancer annually.
That's why I'm participating, will you join me?
