My name is T.R.. I survived a stroke caused by blockage in the Pons area of the brain on December 13, 2007.  I am working hard to achieve some level of normality but am aware of the possibility of developing bad habits.

I can walk to some degree without a cane though I have been using an AFO to assist with foot drop and a knee brace to prevent hyper-extension.

I have some arm movement but little motion in the fingers.  I suffer only at night from cramps and fisting.

I would be very interested to learn more about the Vasa concept.  I am not wealthy and find that most programs are more interested in what I can pay than my recovery.

Looking forward to your response
sincerely yours
