Don't Speak Campaign
Silence for Stroke
What would your life be like if you couldn't speak?
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. Currently, there is no cure for stroke. But there is hope.
- With the support of funds raised by the Peter Couche Foundation and Don't Speak, 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 and you'll be supporting innovative research that could help find a cure for stroke.
