OUTSTANDING EXAMPLE OF THE FIGHT NEEDED TO RECOVER FROM STROKE
25 November 2000 | by skybird101See all my reviews

For the most part the techniques used to recover was good. Better methods are available now but the "fight" is still needed. And to reinvent your own therapy is still too much needed. I encourage all strokees to view this movie!. Love, Light, and Rainbows Ma
