An Australian Stroke Survivor Story

Roger Napthine of Geelong, a small city just west of Melbourne, Australia is featured in an article by Nicole Mayne in today's "Geelong Advertiser." Roger, 56 has been rcovering from a stroke he suffered 1 year ago that made him unable to walk or stand up.

After spending 4 months hospitalised, Roger continues his rehabilitation and has returned to work as a nurse educator for Barwon Health. Roger's advice: "You have to strike a balance on the one hand of not giving up and on the other hand of not being so ambitious that you are a danger to yourself or others."

Next week is National Stroke Week in Australia.
