A Stroke of Luck: A Girl’s Second Chance at Life

alex dixonAlex Dixon was a normal, bright, healthy girl, when a sudden onset of a mysterious illness took over her life. Months of treatments failed to provide relief from acute pain and muscle spasms. Doctors across the country were at a loss.

She provides a personal account of strategies for supporting rehabilitation after stroke.
