Strokes & Seizures have very similar signs and symptoms.
16 years ago, newlyweds John Kawie and Marilyn Manno were planning their lives together, and their plan did not include a stroke. But, when John, a successful stand-up comedian suffered a right hemisphere stroke, leaving him physically and cognitively altered, they were thrust, as partners, into new and unchartered territory.
Join John and his wife, Marilyn, for an interview that will inspire, inform, and make you laugh. John shares his funny perspective in his humor column "Life at the Curb", which appears in Stroke Connection Magazine, a quarterly publication of the American Heart and Stroke Association, and in the DVD recording of his one man show "Brain Freeze", recorded live at Gotham Comedy Club in New York City which is available at:
www.brainfreezedvd.com. (17% of the DVD proceeds go to The American Stroke Association).
Erica Tucci, author of Radiant Survivor, talks about her journey with cancer.
Erica Tucci had a full life as a corporate manager of a Fortune 500 company, a healing arts business owner and an author of three books. It all came to a screeching halt in June 2011 when she had a stroke that left her completely paralyzed on her right side.
During Erica's recovery, she gained much wisdom about what’s really important in life, and she re-entered the world with a new mission: to use her story as an inspiration for others facing life challenges, which we all have, big or small. That story can be found in Erica's new book, Radiant Survivor: How to Shine and Thrive through Recovery from Stroke, Cancer, Abuse, Addiction and Other Life-Altering Experiences, launching on November 19th, 2013.
Today, even while still in recovery herself, Erica continues the work she was doing before her stroke, helping women find their "yin radiance" through their authentic voice and their own healing. And to help others going through their own life-altering experiences, she is developing a trauma recovery coaching program based on her Radiant Survivor book. She considers herself the Radiance Muse, inspiring others to live life brilliantly.
