but i believe that without little drops an ocean couldn t exist STROKE PREVENTION DAY ON THE BEACH Condofuri is a little village located in the Ionio sea, not far from Reggio Calabria a beautiful city in front of Sicily The sun shining in most part of the year, the wheather is warmth and sweet. Condofuri is also one of the 6 villages part of the Old Greek colonies , where still now, everwhere the culture, language and customs of the Magna GRecia is also present. But no prevention about stroke or other kind of illness and where stroke Unit are very limited in number ( Just one in an area with 2,000.000 habitants ) So , 4 years ago, I decided with the support of my all family to organize in the lido restaurant. S family ; called SOLENERO a prevention days , to give an educational and a support to village.s people and not only , because many people from abroad and man others contries come to spent some holidays in this part of the mediaterranean It was very hard to organize a prevention ,s day , because no money , no help, no other support for local government. This not stopped my idea and my convinction to give my expertise and my support to my people ( even if I live from many ears in North Italy im a daughter of South Italy and I don t absolutely like that in South Italy people have no some health care opportunities than people from the North !! Nobody in the world wants , im sure that own family live without an hope of receiving the best care if needed. I strongly belive that is a duty of the best organized countries and knowdledged people to share knowdlege and best care to all people in the world . The 22/8 at 5 pm with the supporto f some friends, famiglie and patients we found a little A.L.I.ce ( Italian stroke organization) in Condofuri ( RC) with the aim to give educational and support people stroke affected and their families It was not easy , but at the end , tenacity and perseverance have been rewarded and in a very hot summer evening another place joint the great ALICE Italy family On agust 13 we have organized on the beach the 5 prevention stroke days . So many people came that we must continue the day after !! 127 people came underwent to a screening of risk factor More than half had high blood pressure and glucose values The 20% of diagnosis have been not known The Cholesterol values were except in a few cases between the range . Merits of the Mediterranean diet ? Were executed 77 Ecocolor Doppler TSA . A French tourist was found an internal carotid stenosis >80% Two patiens had an Unkwnon atrial fibrillation. The initiative has been very successful people were very interested and eager to know more about stroke , prevention , acute care and rehabilitation. Many questions about , including why here we have not a stroke Unit ? This question must made to political and local government. The prevention s day ended with a grilled fish dinner on the beach and with a swim in the crystal clear waters of the Ionian sea! My thank to all people that helped me : nurses , Alessia from Rome and Pasquale from Condofuri , volontiersi, Annalisa,Orsola e Raffaele. My brother Sebastiano owner of the lido beach that paied , my sister Gabriella and all m family that understood this need and follow me in this mission and passion There is still a loto f work to be done , this is a little drop in a big ocean
