BENEFITING: National Stroke Assn.
Stroke is the leading cause of serious, long-term disability in the United States but according to the National Stroke Association up to 80% of strokes are preventable. It is also the 3rd leading cause of death in the country with more than 140,000 deaths attributed to strokes annually. Bob Weatherly was one of those individuals: he took diligent care of himself, having survived brain trauma 14 years prior. He labored hard to restore almost all of his brain function and was aware of many issues that could set him back. Unfortunately, neither he nor his family were aware of the signs of a potential stroke. We are grateful that you have come here and together we will work to educate and care for stroke patients and their caregivers. Your donation will contribute to this cause through the National Stroke Association and honor the memory of Bob Weatherly, a compassionate and caring man who had so much more to give to society.
