As a result I have unfortunately seen what a horrible and misunderstood disease it is. Its effects are lifechanging and the levels of recovery uncertain, no matter how well intentioned the stroke survivor is.[/span][/p][p][span=color: #000080;]Please give generously to help research and educate about this terrible, silent d[/span][span=color: #000080;]isease.[/span][/p][p][span=color: #000080;]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to the charity. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[/span][/p][p][span=color: #000080;]Please give generously. I sincerely appreciate all your support and thank you in advance for any donations.[/span][/p][p][span=color: #000080;]Warm regards[/span][/p][p][span=color: #000080;]Neil[/span][/p]
