HELEN'S JOURNEY

At age 33, Helen Woodhouse was at her fittest and training for her first half marathon. Then everything changed. 

While on a routine 10km training run, Helen found herself confused, off her usual training course and unusually sluggish. She didn’t know it yet, but she had suffered a stroke.

Fortunately her husband acted FAST and she was able to receive thrombolysis clot busting treatment. What followed though was a challenging journey to reclaim her life back. She says she hit rock bottom but climbed all the way back to the top. 

Now, almost 12 months later, with the support of her family and her own determination, Helen has come full circle. She is training again and in 2018 will be running her first half marathon with Team #fightstroke.

If Helen can, then you can too! 

“When something bad happens to you, you have three choices – you can either let it define you, let it destroy you or allow it to strengthen you. I feel like I’m living proof that with the right people around you, the right mindset and some real determination, you truly can get through and conquer anything life throws your way.” 

- Helen, Stroke survivor
