"November 2016 my life changed dramatically. I had a stroke and my right side was paralyzed. I needed to strengthen my right side or be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life. That's why I started swim lessons at the Y. Cathy Wilk, my instructor, is my Godsend. She pushes me to try things and encourages me to keep on pushing. My goal is to not be using my cane by winter 2019. Cathy's support and belief in me are empowering and motivational. I will reach my goals."
