Surviving and recovering from a stroke is a miracle in itself.  Strokes are the leading cause of long-term disability in the United States.  Also known as a “brain attack,” a stroke can affect your movement, memory, emotions, and speech/language abilities.  It can completely wipe out your memory so that you don’t know how to do simple things such as make a pot of coffee.  It can make you incapable of carrying a simple conversation or understanding what someone is telling you.

This video tells the story of Wes Varda, a 31 year old man who suffered a stroke in his brain stem area.  The stroke negatively affected his ability to move and speak and he had to relearn those skills.  Miraculously, 10 months later, he was speaking and walking again after being rehabilitated in a wellness center.  “The hardest part was not being able to talk or communicate – and just laying there.  I couldn’t tell anybody how  I was feeling or ask anybody how they were doing,” Wes said.
