If you noticed the change in the definition for the acronym, STARS, you would be correct.Â Â The title has been expanded to include not only stroke survivors but also those surviving long term illnesses, caregivers and family.
Our big news is that our group is organizing a road trip to the Music Comedy Live Chicago Theater on October 19 for the 1pm matinee of â€œThe Mighty Tedâ€, a musical comedy written by one of our regular members, Ted Waltmire. Ted survived a stroke in 2009 and, following a series of classes at Chicagoâ€™s Second City, he wrote this show that tells of his journey from the time of the stroke until heâ€â€¦ ultimately re-discovered how to live life fully with the love and support of his friends and family.â€ More information is available on line at http://www.themightyted.com/.
If you want to take the trip with us, please let us know by October 12. Tickets are $15 but Ted says he can get a discount for us, his friends.
