The event, held at the foundation�s WA base – The Niche in Nedlands – recognised the efforts of four West Australian finalists � Peter Coghlan , Fiona Stanley Hospital physiotherapist Alisha Anderson and fundraising duo Daniela Mastrocola and Belinda Cipriano of Tuart Hill.
The finalists were chosen from 60 nominations received across four categories – improving life after stroke, creativity, fundraising and stroke care.
National Stroke Foundation chief executive officer Erin Lalor said this year�s finalists were shining examples of people going above and beyond to lessen the significant burden stroke places on our community.
�The efforts of the finalists recognised in this year�s Stroke Awards go a long way to supporting the more than 440,000 stroke survivors living in our community,� Dr Lalor said.
�I�m certain the award finalists will inspire other Australians to look at what they can do to raise awareness of stroke and lessen its considerable impact.�
The tea also formed part of an end-of-year thank you to the foundation�s Strokesafe Ambassadors who provide presentations and run stalls throughout the year.
