Thanks for sharing your story on 91.9 radio today! ~~Keep up the great work~~
I attended the aphasia workshop and learned a great deal. I have had the great opportunity to meet a man who has expressive aphasia and relied on his wife for communication for the past 6 years. I have set up some supports for him which include this web site as your encouragement speaks volumes
. I do hope he gets in touch with you and you are able to give him the encouragement and hope.
Thank you for all you do for others
Love your site it's great what your doing great resource highly recommend it
Good job once again on the "thoughts to ponder". You've come a long way, eh? I'm involved with a group of stroke survivors and highly recommend your great web-site! Keep going!
It was so nice to meet you in the MRI waiting room last night Frank.
I've been checking out your site and I'm impressed and now more informed. I'm going to send the link to the girlfriend I was telling you about. Also, I noticed the pic of you and your bike.....I ride a Harley...Heritage Softail. Maybe I'll see you on the road some time.
In closing......nice legs!!! haha
