How I DO MORE by Christie, Denise, and Perry

Volunteering by Christie

I give back to the Center by volunteering one day a week. I have volunteered for many years and I truly enjoy having a purpose in life. In the beginning, I felt overwhelmed with remembering tasks and issues with memory and my confidence suffered because of it. Now, I have dealt with strategies that work and my confidence has flourished. My day usually consists of helping a mentee learn how to navigate the computer, making birthday cards for the members and brewing the coffee.

I also volunteer to host a golf event called the Kalikie Classic.  The founding fathers and I have been hosting it for 10 years. In the beginning, the founding fathers helped with different tasks because I was forgetful with remembering these tasks. Now, I have learned so much and by memory is better as long as I write them down. I am excited to celebrate this year for my 10 anniversary of my stroke and hosting the 10th Annual Kalikie Classic together. The date is set for September 13, 2017 at Raspberry Falls Golf Club.  If you are interested, please email m

All of these things are why I love the Center because they help us learn how to deal with different tasks. So, please join us in raising funds to support the Center by donating $24 or more to Do Make 24 on June 8th.

Tech Support by Denise

I have lived for six years without understanding how to speak. Now I can use the language much better. It is useful in my writing and reading.  Today I am able to understand the words that I use.  The words can be found to state my thoughts.  I make the best use of English in all aspects.

At Stroke Comeback Center I learned how to use an iPhone. I find that to be particularly useful when listening to books. Audiobooks are of great use to me. When  I  have the ideas for using  the words, I write them. I can read and send these as email and text messages. Finally, there is usage of the  telephone in sending and receiving calls.

I feel that I am making  progress. I will  continue my work with your help. Please consider giving at least $24 on June 8th.
