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 usually do not leave a response, but I browsed a few comments here National Stroke Association. I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Is it only me or does it look like a few of the remarks appear like they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing at additional sites, I would like to follow you. Would you make a list of the complete urls of all your shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

It is straightforward and nevertheless classy with an exceptional clean reduce. As the bride or the bridesmaid, it is very important that you must seem gorgeous during that event. We don't expect to see bankers dressed in jeans and a t-shirt; farmers dressed in suits; clean mechanics; or cleaners wearing delicate fabrics. As the style of the dress evolved, it started to become known more as cheongsam (or long dress). Recently, she made headlines when she ran into Jake Gyllenhaal at a Golden Globes party, and a story by TMZ reveals that she ran into another ex-Harry Styles when she was recently out with some of her friends. In the current climate, people are careful of what they spend and are always looking for a bargain.

The downside of the car tax rates is the trouble it'll cause to average or lower income people. This includes vehicles like the Mazda 2, Ford Fiesta, and Citreon C1. Why are people doing this, when they can opt for a brand new luxury car from the nearest dealership.
