Passion for advocating for better stroke care runs in Dolly’s family. Her mother is a two time stroke survivor who has long been an advocate for the American Heart Association| American Stroke Association and Dolly is following in her footsteps.

Dolly is not yet old enough to vote, but she hasn’t let that stop her from getting involved and making her voice heard! At age 13, she has attended meeting with legislators, visited the New Jersey State House and the Capitol in Washington, DC to talk to our elected representatives about the importance of improving standards of stroke care and funding research and she has even testified before the NJ Senate Budget Committee.

We thank Dolly for all that she has done to make New Jersey healthier and look forward to seeing all that she will do in the future. We hope that her experiences will encourage other young people to get engaged.
