Special Guest Speaker: Valerie Greene, Author, Stroke Survivor, Founder of Worlds #1 Stroke Resource Bcenter.com
At age 31, Valerie was a healthy, vibrant businesswoman until a massive stroke paralyzed the left side of her body and left her unable to speak. Doctors told her that she might never walk or talk again, and most of her hearing was lost. Sheer determination and faith propelled her out of her wheelchair and into a new life learning once more how to walk and communicate.
Now a world wide symbol of hope and advocate for stroke awareness, Valerie has become a beacon of light to millions. Founder & CEO of Bcenter.com – a Global Stroke Resource center, she is a two-time published author, and a motivational speaker. Valerie has appeared on CBS, NBC, ABC & FOX raising public awareness of stroke prevention & recovery while inspiring others that nothing is impossible.
With humor, passion, and insight, she touches hearts, and encourages people in all walks of life to accept their challenges and to keep moving forward.
