One year to the day that a stroke left Sue Armstrong speechless, the B.C. woman’s journey to recovery is to be showcased at a Vancouver gala.
Art and hand-crafted jewelry created by Armstrong – whose art business in White Rock had been budding until she suffered a stroke on Oct. 9, 2018 – is to be on display at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre on Oct. 9, during the Stroke Recovery Association of B.C.’s Art After Stroke Gala.
Set for 7-10 p.m., the fourth annual gala showcases art and entertainment by stroke survivors from across the province, according to a news release.
Armstrong’s stroke stole her ability to speak and the motor skills in her left hand. Her recovery strides have come through determination and the support of the organization’s White Rock chapter, the release adds.
The event is to also raise funds for community programs that support people after a stroke.
