Upcoming Broadcasts

Brenda Joyce Crawford will share some insights into her journey towards recovery from her stroke many years ago. This was not a single effort, as she was aided by her partner, Tonya Williams, and her recovery coach, Carl Warren (whom she has worked with for a couple decades). She and these 2 others, who were a part of her journey, will share on tonight's show. She will discuss the term "stroke survivor." Often times when stroke survivor are mentioned, it is mostly about theirr disabiities. Instead the term should be an opportunity to finally give up the stressor and negative thoughts that cause the brain to explode in the first case. Brenda believes that, In order to recover, stroke survivors have the retrain the brain. This includes the process of discontinuing activities that were contributing factors to the stroke in the first place. She believes that overall, her stroke was a blessing for which she is eternally grateful. Finally, the stroke was the proximal cause of the present of the book: Stroke of Insight which she will also discuss tonight. That book was a birthday gift from a friend who died because she was poor and had insufficient insurance. This book leads into the discussion about low-cost state-funded long term care for seniors. This care would cut down the dollar amount of nursing homes and allow seniors to age in place.
