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!

I drop a leave a response each time I especially enjoy a post on a site or if I have something to contribute to the conversation. Usually it is a result of the passion communicated in the article I browsed. And after this post National Stroke Association. I was moved enough to drop a commenta response :) I do have a few questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be only me or do some of the responses come across as if they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on additional sites, I'd like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list the complete urls of your community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

However, being 'too close' for a writing is amongst the reasons that book editors exist, and lastly the same relates to essay writing. Once you take time to master it - it will become second nature, like riding a bike. This is the low-category degree of ideas that Orwell wished to be able to: "euphemism, question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness.
