First Stroke Camp in Southern Arizona a Success

20160521_220609_resizedSouthern Arizona’s  inaugural Stroke Camp was a success!

Volunteers provided almost 40 stroke survivors, caregivers and volunteers a weekend to remember.  Campers were deeply enriched by sharing their stories with each other, by engaging in game-challenges and music therapy and education sessions, and by just being pampered with massages, golf cart rides…and much, much more.  One stroke survivor told me “I was expecting this weekend to be fun, but I had no idea I would come away feeling so rejuvenated and so hopeful; I think the volunteers made all the difference!”

Plans are already underway for Stroke Camp 2017.  We look forward to providing this valuable experience to an even greater number of stroke survivors and caregivers in our community.
