Welcome to My 2012 Act FAST for Stroke Challenge Page

Help me save more lives from stroke!

May is National Stroke Awareness Month!  In Honor of my Husband, my family and I will be walking each Saturday for the Month of May at Ridley Creek State Park.  This is an informal walk and anyone is welcome to join us.  We will begin our walks at 10:00 AM.

 On October 16, 2006 my husband and the love of my life Walter suffered a massive stroke just two months after turning 50.  Though Walter received medical treatment within the critical period of time necessary, he died just two days later.  The devastation of losing this warm and wonderful man remains constant not only in the hearts of his wife and children, but also in the hearts he touched throughout his life.  

Personally, my greatest sorrow is living without Walter. In the spirit of his generous nature, it is my hope that together we can prevent this from happening to anyone else.    

Please join me, not only in keeping my husband?s memory alive, but also to help the National Stroke Association raise awareness.  We are committed to raising the funds necessary to do research on this disease and to help those who have suffered the devastating effects of a Stroke.

With Love and Gratitude,


I am raising funds for the 2012 Act FAST for Stroke Challenge because strokes can be prevented, but only if we act now.

I can help make that happen? with your support.

National Stroke Association is dedicated to reducing the incidence of stroke, and making life better for stroke survivors and their families. They help people learn how to protect themselves from stroke, and make sure healthcare professionals know about the latest lifesaving treatments.

I?m committed to making a positive difference during National Stroke Awareness Month.

With your support, we can help reach the more than 100,000 people at risk of dying of stroke this year, before it's too late.

Please join me by making a donation!
