Bart Cox - stroke rehabilitation
Bart needs intensive therapy to recover from his stroke, and this will cost up to $40,000. Plus there will be other expenses....Wellington
Bart had a stroke on the evening of Friday 5 July, and he received wonderful care in Masterton Hospital. The blood clot lodged in the part of his brain that controls speech. As a result he is suffering from something called aphasia, and essentially will need to learn again how to talk (although he can say some words). Bart is now having intensive therapy at the Acute Brain Injury Clinic in the Hutt Valley (https://www.abi-rehab.co.nz/). Unfortunately this intensive therapy is not covered by the public health system and it costs about a $1000 per day - and the average length of therapy is 30 to 40 days, so we are looking at $30K to $40K. Every little bit that you can give will help. In addition there are a whole pile of other expenses that will be faced.
Isobel MacKinnon's involvement (page creator)
I'm Izzy, Bart's partner, and I want to ensure that he has the best possible rehabilitation in recovering from his stroke.
Use of funds
Funds will be used to pay ABI for the 30 to 40 days of therapy that will be required and for the many other expenses that Bart will face during his recovery. In the event that there are surplus funds these will be given to Stroke Foundation NZ
