Welcome to Kim Sanger's Tedy's Team fundraising website.
The first man in my life to show me unconditional love was my hero, my Dad, Cecil Saulnier.
Dad worked hard his whole life, growing up in Campton, New Hampshire and going into the Navy. After leaving the Navy, Dad went on to study trades that he put to use as a licensed electrician, and owner of Laconia Refrigeration Company (LARCO). Dad's work ethic passed down to me, he worked 24/7 to support his customers - when they needed him, he helped and I like to take the same approach in my work.
Dad worked hard for everything that he had, and chose to retire early at 55 years young. Unfortunately about 9.5 years later, he suffered his first stroke. Due to the quick thinking of my Step-Mother, Dad was taken immediately to the hospital where they had him up and walking around the next day. He recovered pretty well after that, and life seemed good until his second stroke about 7 years later. That stroke left him paralyzed on the left side and required him to move into a nursing home for full time care where he lived until he passed away in 2007. The night he passed away he was talking with his nurse about options for replacing her home air conditioning unit - always a helper!
That second stroke took away Dad's freedom to do the things he loved to do, like play cards with his friends and be active. I'm raising funds for Tedy's Team to aid in heart health and stroke awareness so that others don't have to live with the same challenges my Dad faced late in his life... Any donation helps!
The mission of Tedy's Team is to raise awareness for stroke and heart disease while supporting survivors on their journey, giving them a means for a comeback!
Tedy's Team was originally founded in 2005, when Tedy Bruschi, former linebacker for the New England Patriots suffered a stroke shortly after winning his 3rd Super Bowl and just days after returning from his first Pro Bowl.
With the help of over 1,200 alumni, Tedy's team has raised awareness of the warning signs of stroke by knowing the warning signs...
Speech Difficulties - and if you notice any of those warning signs, it's...
TIME TO CALL 9-1-1.
