Thanks to all of these donors for their generosity! 

We at National Stroke Association and the thousands of people we interact with every year offer our sincere thanks.

Welcome! Introductions...

I am a runner, and a nurse. I became the stroke nurse for Penrose-St. Francis Hospital in June, and in a few short months I have had the opportunity to meet some of the most amazing people living with the devastating sequelae of stroke - both survivors and caregivers. I love how these people are 'survivors' never 'victims'. I am awed and inspired every day to do all I can to promote stroke awareness in my community and compliance with best practices among my fellow healthcare professionals.

As a runner, I rely on my legs to coordinate to carry me over distances that many people think sound crazy. I train, knowing that this may be a fragile and fleeting experience that I enjoy. Many of the stroke survivors I know have deficits that make the simplest of daily activities mountainous tasks. When I face a tough hill to climb, I think of the enormous obstacles that my stroke survivor friends and patients face unrelentingly. I dedicate each run to them, and am so excited to cross the finish line in NYC!

Two Months To Go!

I have the plane tickets. I have the official race registration. Now all I need is your support!

With two months to go, I recognize more and more how important stroke awareness in our communities truly is. This Labor Day weekend at the Colorado State Fair I reconnected with a stroke survivor and friend. As she told me more of her story I couldn’t help but thinking that she is one of the lucky ones. She had a family member that recognized her symptoms and encouraged her to get help quickly. So many people either don’t recognize the signs and symptoms or don’t think anything can be done, and it is those people to whom we so urgently need to get our message out.

There are too many people and businesses for me to thank for their support in this space, so many who have given; advice, inspiration, and money. I keep a blog at http://mushroomclan.blogspot.com at which I try to keep up with all my acknowledgements of gratitude, as well as a narrative of my marathon training journey.

I would like to mention one special blog, that of Jamie Krug mother to a beautiful boy who had a stroke in utero. She writes powerfully and emotionally about her experiences, and I’ve found much inspiration in her writing to carry me through some of the long, lonely miles I’m running. Read her blog at http://ourstrokeofluck.net/ She, and the stroke survivors and caregivers that I know personally give purpose to my hours spent on the lonely road. Keep checking back for more as we get closer to race day!

But the most important things to look for in an agency is by finding a good insurance policy, they must really take care of you when you are traveling, or in the tour.

Since Yatra coupons are released on periodic intervals and may have short validity periods, it pays to watch out for them as they are made available to the public. For all those with minimal experience like a work at home travel agent, this is not at all the path to go in the beginning, if you don't are completely confident in your marketing skills. Put the scariness aside, the harsh terrains have gave birth to many unique modes of transport that are able to help you get around the ice and snow and they are not only efficient, but fun to travel in at the same time.

If you lose your luggage or damage your possession because of your own carelessness then the travel insurance company may not allow you to make a claim on the grounds of duty of care. Travel novels are a great way to turn your trip into an adventure. A cheap ticket can lead to a lousy flight experience.
