Meet Debbie, one of our Lee's Summit American Stroke Foundation participants. Debbie's favorite activity with ASF is the aquatics exercises where she can practice balancing and using her affected extremity while in the water. Debbie is also a bee keeper with award winning honey!
Jerry has been attending the American Stroke Foundation (ASF) Next Step program for approximately 16 years! Jerry loves coming to ASF for the socialization and community of survivors. They really understand what he is going through. He also enjoys ASF for the exercise because it can be hard to stay motivated to get moving and it gives him a chance to get out of the house. It is easier to exercise when he has others around him and structured time to focus on working out.
