Welcome to My 2012 Act FAST for Stroke Challenge Page


On October 16, 2006 my father suffered a massive stroke. Two days later, on October 18, 2006, my father passed away.


The loss myself, my two older siblings, my mother, and all involved in my father's life suffered is not one that I or any of us could have braced ourselves for and it is certainly not something I could put into words. I do know that I have had five years to adjust to the life-altering consequences of losing someone so important to me and I still do not feel adjusted. I know that I never quite will and that is why my family and I are asking for your help. We would not wish this kind of loss upon any one person, family, or community. Any money that could fund stroke research, treatments, and awareness could prevent this from happening to others.

I am currently living 3,000 miles away from my support system. In addition to fundraising my family has committed to walking every Saturday morning of May at Ridley Creek State Park beginning at 10:00 A.M. and I would be so grateful if you joined them as I am unable to. It is completely informal so please go if you are able to, they are beautiful people that will sincerely and wholeheartedly appreciate your support and walk side-by-side with you.

Thank you so much for your help and support,

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!
