LeaAnn Nielsen-Swinney is the mother of the mother of two beautiful daughters and an an Angel. She's been married to her wonderhusband/caregiver for 28 years, and delights in her fur babies too!

She always start her story with " I went to sleep as LeaAnn and woke up a total stranger."  In Labor Day 2014, she suffered a bleeding stroke and brain aneurysm, which led to brain surgery to relieve the pressure. This situation is thought to be due to a blood disease LeaAnn caught in her mechanical heart valves after some routine dental surgery. The doctors told the family that if she survived, she would never be the same. It took 3 months of re-learning to walk, talk, chew, swallow, read and write. The doctors were right about one thing, like many us, LeaAnn will never be the same.

This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery. This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me."

We focus on the four A's of Recovery: Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers. Warriors!
