National Stroke Association 2010 Logo - 100 transparent

I am a runner. I am a yoga teacher. I am a stroke survivor. Yes, a stroke survivor. Even as I write this, the entire event is all still so surreal. I was healthy and had no risk factors, yet, on April 13, 2011, at the age of 34, I suffered a stroke in my cerebellum. I experienced headaches, dizziness, loss of balance, loss of vision, loss of pain and temperature sensation on the left side of my body. In a matter of moments, my life was changed. Days after my stroke, I remember the frustration and defeat I felt at not being able to balance as I tried to place one foot in front of the other while trying, unsuccessfully, to walk in a straight line. The weeks and months following my stroke were not any easier. My mantra? Acceptance. Patience. Perseverance.

Today, through physical therapy and the unwavering support of my family and friends, not only am I walking in a straight line, but I am also running in one. Ok, so it's not a perfectly straight line, but it will do!

In an effort to take back what the stroke took from me, I have decided to run my 9th marathon. I am so grateful and humbled to be running the 2012 New York City Marathon on behalf of the National Stroke Association.

We need to raise awareness and fund additional research to stomp out stroke. I ask that you please support my efforts by making a donation to the National Stroke Association.

I am reminded every day that life is a gift, and it can change instantly. Please take a few seconds to familiarize yourself with the warning signs of a stroke. Doing so could help you save a life; maybe even your own.

But soon you will find out this is a little extra expensive over a motor insurance and when you want to take advantage because of it, you will need to stock up more cash. Learn about the sort of engine and other features of the various tow trucks offered by different manufacturers and compare prices. Some of those things may be the tires, belts, hoses, windshield wipers, as well as the oil.

In the prevailing vicious competition, borrowers feel benefited as they possibly can approach their demands at lower monthly interest, feasible repayment option and desired loan amount. In fact, they are able to also get back their good debt tag since this loan allows them to settle all of their earlier debts. Poor credit loans are a great option to implement since it has a great good thing about no element pledging collateral.

Once the repayment is carried up to a month, the interest rate escalates to new height and fosters a debt-trap for your salaried people. In fact, they could go for back their good debt tag since this loan allows them to settle almost all their earlier debts. You can also achieve these refinancing options with or without placing any security interest based on your requirement.
