Kathleen Jordan’s life changed irrevocably when she suffered a massive stroke in 2011. Her journey back from “not for resuscitation” is an inspiring story of determination, self-advocacy and learning to think differently about life.
Determined to write a book that could help others as they rebuild their lives after major illness or adversity, an email led her to Vicki Steggall, writer and historian, and the result is Kathleen’s memoir Standing up!: my story of hope, advocacy & survival after stroke. Both women will speak about the experience of writing this inspiring personal story.
