“SPOTLIGHT HONORS” with Maureen Twomey

Hey! That’s me!  😉

 

“If you need some inspiration today – my high school and UCLA (and fellow Sproul Hall front desker!) friend Maureen E. Twomey gave a great interview this morning about her post-stoke experience, which she documented in her own book. She never lost her sense of humor during the whole ordeal, which is saying something!” – Tanya Appuhn Crates

 

“She rambles a bit, but listen two her anyway.” – Maureen Twomey

Before, Afdre, and After …

Before, Afdre, and After (My stroke . . . oh what fun)

2017 PW Before,

“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 …

In Before, Afdre and After, Twomey offers a sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes comical, and ultimately inspiring glimpse at what it is to lose everything when you’re supposed to be in the prime of your life-and what it takes to get it back, piece by tiny piece.”

 

“What’s so funny and inspiring about a stroke? Now I know..”

“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 …”

“Courageous, honest, raw, powerful”

Before, Afdre, and After (My stroke … oh what fun)

“Courageous, honest, raw, powerful” 
By Monica, September 21, 2016  (in Kindle)

“Courageously written, and shockingly honest and raw, the reader gets to experience through the author’s words what it’s like to have a stroke and go through the long process of recovery. Touching, powerful, and real, this story is very moving and filled with insights and tender moments. The author also includes many links and helpful information for anyone who needs similar support and further information.

I just wish that some of the images of reports, writings, and various samples, were a bit bigger – they were too small for me to read. But that did not take away from the story, which was very powerful and made a big impact. I thank the author for sharing this story.”

P.S.: Sorry! — In Kindle the images of reports, writings, and various samples, are smaller. Until Kindle maybe makes the image etc. bigger, here’s two pics of Kindle vs. Print:
