Lianhe Zaobao published a full-page article today, cover story of ZB Now, on the awareness of stroke and profiled stroke survivors, caregivers as well as doctors and therapists for the article. The article shared the stories of stroke suvivors – Janelle Yeo and Rosaline Chow. Janelle spoke about how her stroke occurred and how her journey motivated to join as a volunteer at the Singapore National Stroke Association (SNSA). Her husband, a caregiver to her, touched upon his experience as a caregiver to a stroke patient. Rosaline also shared that her stroke journey gradually improved upon joining Stroke Support Station (S3) which gave her an environment to make friends and take part in rehabilitation exercises. Doctor Anne De Silva gave insights where the incidence of stroke increases with age – with risk factors such as smoking high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity. In order to better cope with stroke recovery, the article also featured ways in which stroke patients can carry out exercises from the comfort of her home – as advised by Dr. Tim Xu Tianma and the Stroke Re-integration Programme (SRi).

Please find the attached clippings for your reference.

Thank you.

Michelle Lin:
I am raising funds for the Singapore National Stroke Association(SNSA) with a haircut.

Stroke survivors are my patients. I daily see their struggles with walking, thinking, talking, eating, grooming in varying degrees. They would welcome help with costs in transport and activities for social integration by SNSA.

Depending on how much you contribute, I will cut my hair as follows:

1. S$50 - I will get a pixie cut
2. S$150 - I will get a faux hawk
3. S$300 - I will get a crew cut
4. S$600 - I will get a buzz cut
5. S$1200 - I will go bald

All proceeds will go to SNSA activities. The cut locks will be donated to the United Kingdom's Little Princess Trust which makes wigs for children with cancer because SNSA does not need my hair:)

Please go to this link to donate to this campaign.
