The Sensational Stroke Steppers are stepping out with a sensational goal to raise $40,000 for St Vincent’s Acute Stroke Unit.
Stroke is the second biggest killer worldwide with 1 in 6 people suffering a stroke. St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne sees nearly 300 patients with Stroke every year and this number is rising.
“Providing care in a dedicated Acute Stroke Unit significantly improves patient outcomes and our goal is to refurbish a four bed bay to provide a state-of-the-art environment for our high acuity patients. This includes new and upgraded equipment and overhead ceiling hoists to optimise therapy and patient mobility,’ says neurologist Dr Lauren Sanders.
