Just began reading the June issue of the Strokenet Newsletter and Lin you have done a great job as per usual. (you deserve a great deal of thanks for your continued dedication and commitment to having this great publication out on time EVERY month.
I was going to email Steve to thank him and congratulate him on Strokenet being recognised as a source of stroke support but I decided to make it a blog post instead.
Steve you were ahead of your time with this concept and your vision, hard work and dedication has provided one of the best stroke support communities available on the net....THANKS!
Now I understand that it possibly would not have happened without the support of a great deal of people such as your wife, family and all of the Strokenet volunteers.
Stroke survivors and caregivers alike have and do continue to come to this site to receive information and support that they just can't find elsewhere.
I have been a member of your site since 03 (one year post stroke) and I have appreciated the support I have been given by other members here.
Some of those members have moved on to other things and I have also not been around as much over the past year. I guess that is part of the healing process and life. (something to be thankful for)
I still stay in touch with most of the survivors that I have met here and continue to meet new ones as the find their way here.
I know from your posts and messages that you do not have an easy ride and I wish that was not the case.
I wish that there was no need to have a Strokenet site, that stroke didn't ever exist and that everyone who has had to deal with the effects of stroke didn't.
But in a real world we do have strokes and have to deal with the after effects of them. Then like a sunny day after months of overcast skies and rain Strokenet comes shining into our lives.
Thank you everyone for all of your efforts to make it that way. Thank you everyone for just being there and thank you Steve for your vision that is slightly ahead of it's time.
I feel that this site justly deserves the recomendation that has been given it.
I wish you all continued future success.
