Reece’s story

Hobart mother of two, Reece Davies was just 37 when she had a stroke.

What started as a pain in her left eye quickly developed into paralysis of her left side.  The doctors gave her just a 10% chance of survival.

The reality is 1 in 4 people will have a stroke in their lifetime but 80% of strokes are preventable.

Tasmania has the highest incidence of stroke per capita in Australia, meaning 1,500 Tasmanians will have a stroke each year.  140 of these will happen to people like Reece who are under the age of 54.

While much has been done to improve the treatment of stroke in the past 10 years, more research is needed to prevent strokes from happening.

At Menzies our research aims to:

  • Better understand the risk factors of people of all ages
  • Test new ways to prevent stroke; and
  • Determine the best ways to improve outcomes for those who have had a stroke

Reece has now made a full recovery, but it was a long and difficult road to regain use of her left side.

Your gift today will help us reduce the number of people who suffer from strokes and ensure those who do, go on to live life to the fullest. Please give now and help us change the odds when it comes to strokes and other major diseases affecting Tasmanians.
