The American Stroke Foundation has given Edi an important and meaningful outlet. She enjoys socialization with fellow survivors, staff, students and volunteers. And she participates in a variety of activities. Edi believes that her strength and energy have increased because of the ASF’s fitness program. Overall, she knows that her social participation has increased and her outlook on life has improved as a result of coming to the American Stroke Foundation. And she has one, overarching goal for her future: to continue working on her road to recovery.
Marvin attends the Missouri Wellness Center and is a favorite of all. He’s quick with a smile and takes time to visit with everybody he meets. He is recognized as a leader within the group, too—he was elected to the ASF Council, a group that serves to inform the staff about the programs that work, any ideas for new activities, and member concerns. Marvin is in a wheelchair as a result of his stroke, but that doesn’t keep him down. He loves to play with the grandkids, go to concerts and plays, and watch movies. He’s a great cook—and he loves to eat!
