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!

Even new tyres do not completely eliminate the risk of aquaplaning or slush planing, but it is possible to control the car as long as you adjust the driving speed to the conditions. The clear winner in the A-Class at the moment appears to be the Lotus Exige '06, which is a mid-engine rear-wheel drive car that started just within the confines of A-class with a PI of 510. The federal government provides you a proportionate deduction from your taxes equivalent to the complete valued from your car donation.

Even new tyres do not completely eliminate the risk of aquaplaning or slush planing, but it is possible to control the car as long as you adjust the driving speed to the conditions. And while the MR2 can be a bit difficult with stock tires - grip can break suddenly if you push the car to hard - simply putting upgraded to sport tires makes the car hang on to bends as if velcroed to the track. Everyone who has ever owned a car will understand what a huge relief that would be in terms of car maintenance.

Lower cost: Comparing to Baidu bidding rank, cost of SEO is much lower. The year 2016 will see an increase in mobile web traffic as consumers browse, read reviews and interact with the brand's social media profiles using tablets, smart phones and other similar mobile devices. Google, for instance, appears to be like for the most pertinent key phrases with the most current content.

This is part of the reason for the creation of these. So, it is necessary to choose those games only, which come with parental safety controls for monitoring and restricting your kids' gaming activities online. If this is how you reward your servants, then I want nothing to do with it.

Nick Brandt chose black and white over color for the ancient and aged look it gave to his images. Therefore the investment in the training process is lost, or minimised without further support. If channeled in the right way, it can open up several new avenues.
