Bill McCracken went to bed one night feeling like a 40 year old and woke up the next day feeling like a 90 year old. A stroke will do that to you. But that doesn’t mean life is over.
For the past few years, it’s been such an honour to work as a Community Navigator with people affected by brain injury. The program I helped develop in 2014 on Vancouver Island was featured in a Top 10 of BC’s Best Initiatives for stroke and acquired brain injury. We just recently finished a video with Bill, who went through the program. Take a moment and listen to his story. He teaches us that although life can change in an instant, there is life after stroke. There are mountains to still climb. Not the ones before stroke; different ones. But it’s still worth the climb.
If you know someone who lives in Nanaimo who has suffered a brain injury (non stroke-related or a stroke), please let them know about the Community Navigator Program. They can self-refer into the program by calling (250) 753-5600 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
