Pelham man says and shows thanks for second chance

(Continued)

"I'm in this gig now where I go to (a stroke) support group and tell them they are going to improve. And they are improving. They tell stroke patients that they won't improve after one year, but I am improving all the time."

What can you not do now that you want to be able to do?

"Skip. I want to be able to skip. Run, Retrieve a word better. I want to be normal. I want to be more normal. I want to get as close to normal as I can."

Anything else?

"Also, I've got a bone infection and once it's cleaned up, I am going to volunteer in the stroke department to give back and show people that they, too, can improve."

Anything else?

"You can't tell me it can't be done."
