Don’t Speak – Silence for Stroke 14th September 2012
What would your life be like if you couldn’t speak?
What if you couldn’t express an opinion. Ask a question. Tell your children you love them. Peter Couche – and thousands of Australians like him – know.
Every 10 minutes someone in Australia has a stroke. Some are minor and do not result in lasting damage. But for most, stroke results in permanent disability, sometimes including loss of speech. It can strike anyone, of any age, at any time.
With the support of funds raised by the Peter Couche Foundation scientists at the Robinson Institute are pioneering adult stem cell (non-embryonic) research designed to regenerate and repair damage to the brain caused by stroke.
Don’t Speak for one hour on the 14th September 2012!
You’ll be supporting innovative research that could find a cure for stroke and enable someone like Peter Couche to speak again.
