Our group will meet again for STARS (Spiritual Time and Renewal after Stroke) on Thursday, August 14.

If you were with us in July, you had an opportunity to meet Ted Waltmire. About 5 years ago Ted had a stroke. Since then he has been challenging himself to continue to learn and enjoy his life. In 2012 after a learning experience in improv and writing at Chicago’s Second City, he wrote and stared in the musical The Mighty Ted to chronicle his journey after his stroke.   Ted will be sharing some of his music and thoughts about his experiences with our group at our next meeting.

Also,  Christina del Toro, Ph.D., CCC-SLP has confirmed that she will be available to meet with our caregivers and answer questions that they may have about aphasia and other language difficulties after stroke.

We hope you can join us.  Our interfaith group begins gathering at 1:15pm at Community United Methodist church, 20 North Center Street in Naperville.   The Support groups begin at 2pm.  come for the service or the support groups….or both!  Let us know by Monday, August 11 if you will need child care so we can make the arrangements.
