Join Our Effort to Save Lives

With someone in the U.S. having a stroke every 40 seconds, your gift to the Saint Luke’s Marion Bloch Neuroscience Institute can help patients receive life-saving stroke care.

Make Every Minute Count

When Jesus Renteria suffered a stroke after serving the lunch rush from his taco truck, every minute mattered. Upon arrival at Saint Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City, Jesus was immediately assessed and diagnosed by the Saint Luke’s Marion Bloch Neuroscience Institute stroke team. We helped Jesus return home after a week-long stay in the neurosurgical intensive care unit. Since then, he’s been back serving the lunch rush and even expanded his business.


As a pioneer in innovative stroke care, the Neuroscience Institute knows time is precious. We treat more strokes and restore blood flow to the brain faster than any other hospital in the region. But we can’t do it without your generosity.

This May, during National Stroke Awareness Month, your financial support is critical. Help us continue to expand our reach in the region, bringing our nationally-recognized care even closer to patients who need it most, and accelerate the leading-edge research that pushes treatments forward.

We can continue to do all of that because of you. Your generous support can help bring expert care to patients like Jesus.
