In October 2014, I was in the hospital after a left hemispheric brain stroke. I was learning how to use my right arm and hand again. I was barely walking. In these years following, I have struggled cognitively and often wondered if I would ever write again. I worried I could never return to crime victim advocacy which is where my heart has been for over twenty years. The good news is I have faced the battle head on and won! My work is not done!
