Seaside’s Stroke Support Group will meet Thursday, February 12th at 1:30 PM. Linda Weatherspoon, a stroke survivor, will be this month’s guest speaker. She and her family are the authors of “Can I Paint in Heaven.”
In April of 2007, Linda Weatherspoon suffered a sudden, devastating stroke due to a ruptured aneurysm in her brain. In a flash, an entire life of work, a Masters level education, and the ability to walk, talk, read and think logically were taken away from her and 30% of her brain was physically destroyed.
Linda’s determination and recovery is nothing short of miraculous. This book is written to describe the emotions and circumstances Linda and her family found themselves in, and just what the extended family went through in order to help Linda rehabilitate. Step by step, told through Linda’s voice, her husband Jeff and various other friends and family, this is the story of Linda’s ongoing and triumphant victory. Today she leads a stroke group in Myrtle Beach
If you or a family member has suffered a debilitating stroke or life changing medical catastrophe, this book will provide you hope.
If you’re a care giver for a stroke victim, or a stroke survivor, you’ll want to attend. The Support Group is open to our community and there is no cost to attend. Please share this information with your friends and neighbors and invite them to attend.
