Kathy Spencer's Story Of Recovery After Stroke

I was just reading chapter 11 of the book "The Man With The Bionic Brain" by Dr.Jon Mukand. He tells us of Kathy Spencer and her recovery from stroke. It was in this chapter of this book that I learned about Kathy and her You Tube video. She tells us how she has used the tools that were available to her while being faithful to her daily exercises. She had learned how to re-teach her brain and by setting a goal to play the piano again, she did what I call "project based stroke recovery".  She became along the way a stroke myth buster and an amazing advocate to persons and families affected by stroke.

Kathy says it much better than I ever could, so just click on the arrow in the middle of the image below to start the video.

  1. Love Kathy! I have a quote of hers in the 2nd ed. of Stronger After Stroke. and I've never quoted anyone ever before!

  2. Peter, Thanks for your comment. Kathy has it all going on for sure. I hope that I am able to connect with her one day. I LOVED how she gave you a plug in her video... - Gary
