About Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland

Everyone has the right to live life to the full. After a diagnosis of a chest or heart condition or a stroke, many people experience fear and isolation and struggle with the impact on their lives. Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland won’t stand for that. The care and support we deliver every day ensures everyone can live the life they want to.

 

About Fundraising

You can help Steven speak again

Steven had a massive stroke in 2016. His twin brother John and his family were told to say a final goodbye to him in his hospital bed.

But amazingly Steven survived and his family will forever be thankful for that. Three years on, Steven is still fighting to recover. He has learnt to walk again but he is still unable to speak.

It has been an incredibly tough time but thanks to you Steven is not alone. Claire from Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland has been by his side every step of the way. With your support Claire can keep visiting each week and help him speak again.
