Give from the HEART
Language of Love Telethon
Together, we are lifting our voices and are changing the face of Strokes and Aphasia locally and around the Globe.
Did you know 15 million people suffer from 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.
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 !
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 patients 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.
We are very honored to make a donation to our partner 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, 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 7th 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 sponsor levels. Beyond your sponsorship, we welcome you to join us by participating in The 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,
Founder / President &
RenéMarie Language of Love Foundation, Inc TEAM
