Before, Afdre, and After (My stroke … oh what fun)
“What an amazing person you are Maureen”
By Kathy Storga
“Imagine one day going through your daily routine, and the next thing you remember is being told that you will have to relearn how to walk, talk, read and write. This happened to a high school classmate of mine, Maureen Twomey, at the age of 33, after suffering a massive stroke without warning.
Maureen is a UCLA graduate and a successful advertising professional who was in the prime of her life. (I wish that I could say we were friends in HS instead of acquaintences – definitely my loss.) I read her book, “Before, Afdre, and After” in one sitting. (Not many books capture my attention to do that.) I highly recommend it!
The two things Maureen’s stroke did not take from her was her sense of humor and her passion to fight to get her life back. What an amazing person you are Maureen!!”
