Through a Blue Tie Ball and being a part of the TV show “Adventure All Stars”, Ms Baker has found many ways to fundraise for the cause, with her team raising nearly $10,000 a month for the cause.

Ms Baker has been involved with the Stroke Foundation through her charity Moyamoya Australia, which she created after her son’s diagnosis when he was only a few months old.

“It’s been a huge part of our life and now we are helping raise awareness for the disease through our charity,” she said.

“Because Moyamoya causes strokes, we want to help over 100,000 people diagnosed with the disease through raising funds and awareness.

“We are particularly promoting the FAST program, which helps people identify when someone is having a stroke by looking into their movement and speech and what to do.”

Ms Baker expressed her humbleness and gratitude to be recognised as a finalist for the event and is excited to head down for the awards event on 4 May.
