Did you know- 15 million people suffer stroke worldwide each year – 5 million die and another 5 million are permanently disabled. Stroke is the 5th leading cause of death and 1st leading cause of disability in the United States. On average someone in the USA has a stroke every 40 seconds. These are devastating statistics! Strokes, don’t only happen to our Grandparents! A Stroke can happen to anyone, at any age, even an unborn baby!
Do you know what Aphasia is? A condition characterized by either partial or total loss of the ability to communicate verbally or using written words. Due to brain trauma, injury or Stroke, a person with Aphasia may have difficulty speaking, reading, writing, recognizing names of objects or understanding what people have said. Can you imagine? - Aphasia is a "silent" life changing effect of stroke or brain trauma!
By knowing the warning signs of stroke and getting help within the first 4-1/2 hours of onset it can be successfully treated. Unfortunately, the signs of stroke are too often not recognized, especially in a young person. Education in what to look for can save lives and this is where the Language of Love Telethon for Stroke and Aphasia Awareness come into play.
Our 6th Telethon was scheduled to take place this year in May, which is National Stroke Awareness Month. Then the whole world turned upside down and everything came to a screeching halt, including the influx of donations that we count on from the Telethon. The donations from individuals and the corporate side were all put on hold as companies just tried to survive. We have now rescheduled our Language of Love Telethon to Sunday, October 4, 2020 and because we still don’t know how COVID-19 will continue to manifest, it will be on a virtual basis with speakers and entertainers coming through via a variety of platforms and videos. We are asking you to help us now with a donation so that we can continue to provide the help that so many need. Please visit our website www.languageoflovetelethon.org and you will find information on how you can easily make a donation, no matter how small, every penny helps.
Inception of Language of Love Telethon:
Founder and President of the Language of Love Foundation, RenéMarie, had a massive Stroke at the age of 26, and suffered from Aphasia. After a long recovery, RenéMarie shared her experience in writing the book "Stroke of Luck", and is now giving back to the community and world through her Internet TV Show, www.renemariestrokeoflucktv.com , RenéMarie Language of Love Foundation Inc. www.renemarielanguageoflove.org and the annual Language of Love Telethon www.languageoflovetelethon.org !
Language of Love Telethon Purpose:
RenéMarie Language of Love Foundation, is partnering with Life’s Next Chapter Foundation www.lifesnextchapterfoundation.org to bring education and awareness to students through the school systems. This education can not only save a life (possibly your life), but bring hope to survivors – There is Life after Stroke and Aphasia.
Recovery - Financial Aid
Along with awareness and our annual Telethon, RenéMarie’s Language of Love Foundation Inc. mission is to extend support and provide financial aid to stroke victims whose medical insurance resources for rehabilitation have run out. Rehabilitation is tragically underfunded! Instead of helping people get back to a productive life, it causes long, unsuccessful recovery and, sadly, effects not only the individual. It often brings tension and stress to loved ones. Money should not be the determining factor in recovery.
For the 5th year in a row, we are very honored to partner, with the American Stroke Association. Their portion of the Telethon proceeds are designated to solely benefit funding for stroke research.
We are blessed to welcome Entertainers, Doctors, Healthcare Organizations, and Nurses, Stroke and Aphasia Survivors, Volunteers, Family Friends and so much more!
We cannot do this alone and this is where you come in. With your support of the 5th Annual Language of Love Telethon we can continue to make a positive and crucial impact! We are asking for your organization, company or hospital to partner with us.
Enclosed is a sponsorship package that provides information on sponsorship levels. Beyond your sponsorship, we welcome you to join us by participating in Language of Love Telethon. We look forward to hearing from you.
May God bless you throughout your life, may you be healthy and thank you in advance for your kind support in this endeavor.
With Heartfelt gratitude,
Executive Director of RenéMarie Language of Love Foundation, Inc.
a little more about you.
