2019 Recipient Ferdinand Vargas – Volunteer and Member

It’s been a decade since I had a brain stroke. The journey to recovery was so hard and very challenging that it reached the point of giving up and believing that the brain damage that I sustained during my stroke is permanent and irreversible. Nonetheless, having been given the chance to a second life, I had to find ways and means to improve my physical and health condition. That’s when I came to know about the North Shore Stroke Recovery Centre. Initially I was a regular member of the program but then I became a volunteer up to this day.
