Teacher who had stroke in 20s supports survivors

Teacher who had stroke in 20s supports survivors

Posted: 1st March 2021

A teacher who had a stroke in her 20s is walking 1.2 million steps to help rebuild the lives of other survivors.

Kayleigh Trainor was just 27 when she was shocked to discover she was experiencing a stroke.

She said: “Feeling out of sorts, I looked in the mirror and noticed there was a drop in my face. Work colleagues looked concerned when they saw me that morning, but I brushed it off as ‘nothing serious’, thinking it was maybe an allergic reaction.

“Searching for antihistamine at the chemist, the pharmacist told me I needed to get to A&E. Still believing it was an overreaction, I apologised for wasting everyone’s time.

“I was rushed through, with doctors monitoring me and tests carried out. I was told I had had a stroke.”

To mark the five years since her stroke, Miss Trainor, assistant headteacher at Forest Hall School, is completing the Stride for Stroke challenge.

Over 120 days, she is walking a total of 1.2 million steps – 10,000 steps per day - to raise money to support the 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK.

Miss Trainor, who never discovered the cause of her stroke and was on medication for a short period of time, said: “Many charities are struggling to raise funds due to the pandemic, which is why I wanted to sign up for the challenge. Many people rely on the work of charities to support with their recovery, so I thought I would be able to raise some money as every little helps. Also, I did not want to get caught up in the winter slump of not being active.

“I do look back in disbelief that I was so young when this happened and probably a bit more shocked at how casual I was about it, still trying to go to work.

“I do feel incredibly lucky that I have made a full recovery and had no long-term impacts. It just makes you realise there is no set age for having a stroke; it can happen to anyone at any time.”

So far, Miss Trainor has raised £1,063 for the Stroke Association. Donate here.
