Every Moment Matters

A Campaign to Support Advanced Stroke Care in the Southern Interior of BC

“In a stroke, every second is important. All those moments that are so precious with your loved ones, they are slipping away with every second that goes by. Every moment matters.” – Dr. Alexsander Tkach, Vascular Neurologist, Medical Director Interior Health Stroke Network

Last year, over 1,500 patients and families experienced stroke. A stroke is an abrupt loss of brain fuction caused by a sudden blood vessel blockage or rupture in the brain. It can happen at any age, in both men and women.

The grim reality of stroke is sobering; it is still the leading cause of long-term disability in adults and the third leading cause of death in BC.  Every year, the numbers are growing.

The KGH Foundation has committed to raising $8 million to support a revolutionary, comprehensive advanced stroke care plan that will radically transform treatment for patients living in the southern interior of BC.
