Before, Afdre, and After (My stroke . . . oh what fun)
“When Maureen Twomey was only thirty-three years old, she experienced a massive stroke-one that took away her ability to read, write, walk, and even speak (AAAAAAAHHH!!). Well, she wasn’t about to go down without a fight …

This year she got a great book, Before, Afdre, and After !
Praise for Before, Afdre, and After (My stroke … oh what fun)
“Wow. I can appreciate the fact that this book was not as easy as turning spell checker on. The amazing story, the endless support of friends and family and the continuous conquest of innumerable obstacles (permanent? Ha!) all made for an interesting, thought provoking, and impactful read. Veeeeery interesting! I would even recommend this to my kids …”
