I am a speech pathologist. Together with my two friends and co-workers, Julie Dominik OT/L and Susan Hundley PT, the three of us have facilitated and organized our local support group for the last 16 years. A little background about our group "The Lucky Strokes". We started out with only 4-5 female stroke survivors, and have grown to approximately 20-30 members of stroke survivors and caregivers. We meet monthly and discuss current stroke research, advancements in medical and rehabilitation treatments, bring in community speakers, and have several social outings per year.

During these meetings the members offer a safe, supportive, caring, and compassionate situation where stroke survivors can voice fears, frustrations, and joys. After each meeting I know that we all leave inspired by our group members. My co-workers have been there consistently without fail. We do this on our own time. I am always amazed by their compassion, hard work and dedication to this group as their patients as well as our friends. Members come and go as their emotional needs are met. We feel very fortunate to have gotten involved in this great service we are able to provide.
