Stroke Support Beyond the Hospital

In our community, nearly 25% of adults will have a stroke during their lifetime. That means it is likely that you or someone you know will experience a stroke and the potentially life-changing impact. And it’s not just the stroke survivor, but also their family and the community who face new challenges.

This fall Kaldi’s Coffee Roasting Co. will donate $1 from the sale of their 25th Anniversary giveback package to Missouri Baptist Medical Center.  We’ll use those funds and funds raised at our fall Foundation signature event, Back to the Eighties, to support stroke survivors and their families. We’ll share knowledge and expertise beyond hospital walls to provide ongoing care, education, therapy services, nutritional support and more to help stroke survivors and their families thrive in their daily lives.


Help support our mission by making a donation to the Foundation. Or consider becoming a Champion for Care.

Every Second Matters When a Stroke Occurs

That fall day in October 2016 was just like any other weekday. Rich Welmon, a mechanic, got up and went to work; he didn’t think anything of the heaviness he felt in his leg or the short episode of dizziness he experienced during the day.
