There are 152,000 strokes a year in the UK and 1 in 4 happen to people under 65 years old. In fact, the number of people having strokes aged 20 to 64 increased by 25% from 1990 to 2010 worldwide!
Please help us today to make a positive difference to younger stroke survivors and their families. From jumping out of an aeroplane, running a marathon, to taking information leaflets to your local hospital or GP surgery, there are so many ways to get involved.
Greg says; "My whole outlook on life has changed since getting involved with Different Strokes. Raising over £1000 by jumping out of a plane was a fantastic experience and my way of giving back and saying thanks."
Help Different Strokes now to help other younger stroke survivors like Greg to reclaim their lives. Your vital and much-needed assistance today will help us to provide our support services to families in need. Please donate here or text DIFF33 £5 to 70070
