On July 26th, the 31st anniversary of the ADA, I addressed the MGH IHP OT classes that comprised COTAD. They asked me to speak about my stroke and how coping with it led me to form Cecropia Strong.
Speaking to the group was challenging, given my aphasia (an impairment, as a result of my stroke, that makes it difficult to find the words I’m thinking of.) But while I won’t be airing on the evening news, the COTAD students were grateful to learn about the amount of work that goes into rehab and the founding of this charity!
