We are small not-for-profit team using our expertise and experience to help raise funds and awareness for stroke sufferers.
WHO WE ARE.
The Helen Hick Stroke Foundation aims to arrange Support Groups, for people who’ve suffered from a stroke. Creating these groups will enable people to talk and share their experience, the younger sufferers (under 70) are sometimes forgotten - our aim is to give support for all age groups, especially younger people.
Helen Hick said, “Having experienced multiple strokes, I felt I needed someone to talk to, ask questions and find an understanding of how I was feeling, creating support groups will help share how sufferers are feeling, just talking will help alleviate stresses and anxiety.”
After suffering from a stroke the chances of another one are quite high, unless you change your lifestyle. Support Groups will not only provide mental support but also suggestions and advice regarding checking your blood pressure and what you could change in your current way of living.
