Marcia Moran was a successful business strategist who had been building her business over the last 20+ years. She thought she had life by the tail, but little did she know what was in store.

After suffering a major stroke in 2014 at the age of 53, Marcia applied her skills in planning and strategy as she strived to become whole. In 2019 she published a book about her experience called "Stroke FORWARD," to bring hope to stroke survivors and their caretakers, and share how becoming her own health advocate and exploring holistic methods for healing were keys to her recovery. Marcia speaks and shares her message of hope, inspiration, healing, and a way forward across the country.

During this episode, you will hear Marcia talk about:

  • Her experience with her stroke and the challenges she faced during her recovery
  • How her husband Jim became her health advocate until she was eventually able to advocate for herself
  • How holistic health methods helped her recover from aphasia
  • How her book can help stroke survivors and caretakers navigate life after a stroke
