B.L.A.S.T. 2011 Thanks you for turning BLAST to B.L.I.S.S. "Better Life In Stroke Survival"
"Building Life After Stroke Together" began as a simple acronym with a handful of loyal dedicated people to whom I am thankful for their ongoing support. BLAST 2011 was 100% volunteer driven with time, money, love and the desire to help each other grow. It is difficult to thank everyone when each and every person involved contributed to it's success. The gifts shared and received are intangible, immeasurable, and inexplicable.
Stroke Survivors' B.L.A.S.T. 2011 was an experience WE can all be proud of as we progress and build strength to the meaning of "Building Life After Stroke Together". I will do my best to honor and thank some of the special people involved.
Special thanks to Karel Ley who immediately jumped on board and saw where I was heading back in March 2009. Through ups and downs she continues to remain target to my frustrations and emotional rants along with Martha. Of course a big thank you to Margaret Hansen for stepping up to run the show for us.
