The Great Now What

I love this and hope it’s successful.  Please donate to this.

I am very confident in my lack of confidence that there will ever be any kind of cure for stroke.  If it ever happens, I’ll be long, long dead.  So, our options are to figure out this new incredibly messed up life for ourselves because the people who are supposed to help us the most, don’t.  That’s been my experience and the experience of many, many others who have commented on this blog.

So please donate to this project and read her story.  “Maggie (33) has it all: brains, beauty, an education, a fiancé, and plans for a family.”  We can all say something similar, no?

Watch this trailer (it’s different from the teaser that was on my last post.)  Watching this trailer will make you cry, like a lot, because if you’ve had a stroke you will know exactly how hopeless and broken and devastated and scared and angry and (insert emotion) that she feels.  You’ll be able to empathize with Maggie.  I know I can.  The part of the video with her in a wheelchair kicking a stupid ball to her physical therapist was – I’ve been there.

So, watch, read her story, and donate to this please.

The Great Now What

(Here is the teaser that Maggie sent me a week or so ago and I wanted to post it here again because it’s really powerful).
