What would your life be like if you couldn't speak?
What if you couldn't express an opinion, ask a question or tell your children you love them?
Peter Couche - and thousands of Australians like him - know.
Every 10 minutes someone in Australia has a stroke and for most stroke sufferers, they are left with a permanent disability. For some, the disability includes loss of speech.
Shhhhhhhh!!!! Don't Speak for one hour on the 7th of June. Register on this page and ask friends and colleagues to sponsor you. You'll be supporting innovative research that could find a cure for stroke and enable someone like Peter to speak again.

The impact of stroke on an individual and their loved ones is devastating. The reality is, it affects so many South Australians and their families each year.
Hearing Peter’s story and learning how he has now dedicated his life; despite his challenges, to helping
others who have suffered from stroke, is truly inspirational.
In the few years I have known of the Peter Couche Foundation, I've seen the incredible progress their research has made in giving real hope to sufferers of stroke.
