❤️?Hi, everyone! What a fabulous day it is to be alive! My name is Kim Chadwell and I, like Tedy Bruschi, am a proud stroke survivor! That’s right, 50 years ago (next April) I incurred a 50%occlusion of the left carotid artery which left me unable to walk, talk or even feed myself; in short, function. That was then...Today, I gladly live gracefilled and loving life as a busy wife of 30 years, mother of 3 and grandmother of 7; managing a professional career in allied mental health and wellness. And... I’m blessed in being able to run/walk distance!Recovering from my stroke those years ago and regaining the ability to speak again, I learned other stroke survivors were not as fortunate as I. They had lost “their voice,” and independence;stuck, unable to be heard.Therefore, embracing the opportunity for self-empowerment and pairing with Tedy’s Team, together, we can raise a unified and collective voice, helping raise money for those who still need our help! That’s why this stroke survivor is running the 2019 Boston Marathon?? celebrating my 50 blessed years as a stroke survivor! Let’s partner together in raising stroke awareness and education for the general public and those living with stroke and their families! Your voice and commitment will go the distance not only on Marathon Day but, well into the future! Thank you so much for making a positive difference in the lives of so many! I’m living proof of what can happen when one maintains a ‘Don’t give up’ attitude in spite of adversity! Your love, prayers and donations really do impact others in the community! Remember, it’s just one step forward at a time that can make all the difference in the world!
