I am raising awareness and celebrating Amanda, my sister and stroke surviving hero, at the Phoenix 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, Amanda, and the 7 million stroke survivors in the United Sates, by making a donation today. Participating in this walk is a huge comeback for my sister!
Did you know?
- Vertebral dissection may occur after physical trauma to the neck, such as a blunt injury (e.g. traffic collision), strangulation or manipulation.
- Vertebral artery dissection (VAD) is a flap-like tear of the inner lining of the vertebral artery, which is located in the neck and supplies blood to the brain. After the tear, blood enters the arterial wall and forms a blood clot, thickening the artery wall and often impeding blood flow.
- Amanda survived a VAD that caused 6 strokes in March 2018?
- Amanda has fought her way to stay alive, leave ICU, leave the hospital, leave the in resident rehab ceneter, hit numerous therapy milestones, and kept a smile and positive attitude through it all?!?!
That's why I'm participating, will you join me?
