Advanced Stroke Care
When a stroke occurs, the moments that come next dramatically affect the patient’s outcome. There is a small window of time where survival and recovery are not only possible, but outcomes are measurably and significantly improved.
Last year in BC, there were over 8,100 reported cases of stroke. Behind the statistics are our loved ones and thousands of families whose lives are altered forever by the devastating impact of stroke.
For residents in communities across the BC interior, access to advanced stroke care often means transportation to Vancouver or Calgary.
But when every moment matters, this delay can have devastating consequences.
That’s why KGH Foundation is raising $8 million as part of a revolutionary plan to centralize stroke care, right here at KGH. Patients from BC’s interior will no longer have to risk their health outcome due to unnecessary travel time.
Together, we will reduce the devastating impact of stroke.
When every moment matters, we can be ready. Please help.
Your donation supports a revolutionary stroke care plan that will radically improve treatment for patients at ALL stages of the stroke care continuum, from onset to rehabilitation, research and prevention. It will touch patients in all areas in the interior of BC.
