INOVA Stroke Group
Each Wednesday this group of Stroke survivors meets to sing and socialize. Many of the members deal with Aphasia and other issues resulting from their stroke. We use Music Therapy to work on personal goals and as a tool to bring positive socialization. The group is a family that is always excited to open their arms to new members. No musical talent is needed, just the ability to be a friend and to have fun.
"I wanna sing out, take a risk, climb a mountain to the very top and shout – WE ARE SURVIVORS!
The beginning was rough, it got kinda tough. This is how we made it – WE ARE SURVIVORS! - OOOHHH!
We’re just normal folk who had a stroke, let us share our journey with you!
Ashley – I always loved to dance, since my stroke I dance more than ever
Tim – Speech
Gabriel - Speech
Randy – Since my stroke my connection to other Survivors has shown me how to never give up! I learned that by helping other people you can find happiness and success.
Melissa – I learned just because there’s something you can’t do now, doesn’t mean it isn’t something you cant do in the future. You just need patience. KEEP THE FAITH!
