If you noticed the change in the definition for the acronym, STARS, you would be correct.   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 “The Mighty Ted”, 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 Chicago’s Second City, he wrote this show that tells of his journey from the time of the stroke until he”… ultimately re-discovered how to live life fully with the love and support of his friends and family.” 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.
