Member Testimonials

“When one experiences a stroke, the peculiarities and specificities of the resultant symptoms are unique. It’s easy to believe that the only person in the world who could possibly understand the recovery struggle is oneself. However, after attending the Inner West Stroke Recovery Club, I’ve learnt I’m unique just like every other stroke recoverer. I enjoy the comradeship of the Club and the online Choir – I attend them to know that I’m not alone.”
– Robin Reich

(Stroke survivor & member of the Sydney Inner West Stroke Recovery Club)
