Joel's Story

Back in September 2022 our colleague and friend, Joel, suffered a life-changing stroke and acquired aphasia. His recovery has been, and continues to be extremely challenging. As a result of the stroke, Joel is suffering from Broca’s aphasia. He is working hard to regain his communications skills, using a variety of different techniques and resources.

Joel discovered Say Aphasia, finding their help and support very valuable throughout his recovery so far. We are completing this charity walk for a number of reasons.  We would like to show Joel how much he means to us, show our appreciation to Say Aphasia and make sure that they can continue to help others.
