Thank you, Sylvia

Sylvia left a gift in her Will to help conquer Stroke

The first we knew of Sylvia was when we received notification of the gift she’d left us in her Will. Shortly after, a beautiful story of a much-loved woman began to unfurl.

Friends remembered Sylvia’s kindheart and her wish to help others. She spent part of her adult-life caring for her mother, and developed a passion for medicine. Becoming a medical secretary was her next step and, in the course of her career, she discovered the devastating impact a stroke could have on people and their families. She saw that research and treatment were vastly under-funded, and she decided to remember the Stroke Association in her Will.

Sylvia’s gift has helped fund our work to conquer stroke. She’s supported research to prevent and treat stroke, and she’s helped care for survivors. And that’s something you can do too – in the same way.

If you would like to learn more about remembering the Stroke Association in your Will, please get in touch.
