Two Strokes Not Out
A Personal Experience Guide for Stroke Survivors and Their FamilieseBook - 2014
Sas Freeman was living the fairytale dream as a model, a television, and film actress - which all came to an end overnight. Life changed drastically for the 45-year-old as the result of not one, but two back-to-back strokes. Now unable to move or communicate unaided, does she mourn the life she once had? No - she finds new doors to open in adversity, becoming an accomplished painter with her non-dominant hand. Freeman's account of her journey of courage and mistakes will both inspire and assist fellow survivors and their families. Her book is an honest and often humorous account of the past few years coping with a difficult life turnaround that makes no sense. What were once easy everyday tasks now require exceptional effort and patience. Intertwined with her story are invaluable guidelines, helpful suggestions, and practical steps to recovery - for both stroke survivors and their caregivers.
