Sarah Shellabear Stroke Fund
In 2019 my wife Sarah died of a massive stroke. She was 61, with three daughters, 4 grandchildren, and everything to live for. Unbeknownst to her, she had a genetic disorder that had affected all females in her family for generations, causing premature death from stroke. In Sarah’s honour, our family has initiated the Sarah Shellabear Fund for Stroke Research, in collaboration with The Perron Institute and The University of Western Australia, to provide perpetual finance for a Chair in Stroke. This Chair structure will dramatically increase the level and quality of Stroke research undertaken.
Stroke Centre of Excellence
In partnership with Perron and UWA we have created a centre for excellence purely focused on Stroke. This Chair structure will enable a dramatic increase in the level and quality of Stroke research undertaken. It will also enable public education to assist in Stroke prevention.
