Fancy a cuppa...

21st April 2018
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey.
Now I’ve got you singing, what a lovely day yesterday was, the sunshine was just what I needed, well that and some giggles with my bestie, a few hours well spent for sure, then the rest of the day with my mom in a good mood and all is good in my world.  I even caught her BeYOUtiful smile on camera, how great is this shot, this is the mom no disease can take from me…

Today’s our coffee morning day, so this blogs got to be short because I have a lot to do, here’s to raising lots and lots of money for the Stroke Association.  Why the Stroke Association?  Well four ladies Pam, Karen, Deanne & Sally (2 of my members) are running a 5k on Sunday in aid of the same charity. Pam’s dad had a stroke last year but made a full recovery thanks to thrombolysis. Karen has been inspirational in her weight loss journey, already having lost 10 stone.  The money will help those like Pam’s dad live an independent life, Pam loves her dad so very much and cannot begin to explain how lucky they feel still having him in their lives after such a scary experience.   
Fact: There are more than 100,000 strokes in the UK each year; that is around one stroke every five minutes.

There are over 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK.

Every two seconds, someone in the world will have a stroke.

Stroke is the fourth single leading cause of death in the UK.

Together we can help reduce these statistics- please give if you can, thank you.  If you can’t make it today, do a donation on their justgiving page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/karen-green33 you can also text a donation Text OWLS61£1 or £2 or £5 or £10 or £20 - to 70070 to donate.

I haven’t had my dad for over 20 years, he suffered strokes and they were horrid, mom also had mini strokes which contributed to her vascular dementia, they’re horrid and if fundraising and research can help, then let’s raise serious cash. 

What can you do to reduce your risk of having a stroke? It’s all about those lifestyle changes,
Stop smoking
Drink less alcohol
Eat healthy
Do more exercise
Watch your weight.

All these things can help to improve many medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol and reduce your risk of stroke as a result. 

Right hope to see you at
