International Women's Day: Marking the 'Unplanned Paths' of a stroke survivor and her daughter

Tue 08 Mar 2022

Liz from South London had a stroke at 37. The life she and her family knew turned upside down.

Now with the help of Liz’s carer Lorna, Liz and her daughter Justina, have written a book ‘Unplanned Paths: A Stroke of Luck Life’ which tells the ‘trials and triumphs of two British Black women’ before and after Liz’s stroke.

Liz’s motto is ‘life is for living’ and says she hopes the book will inspire other stroke survivors to embrace every second. It’s that inspirational spirit, Justina hopes will encourage more people to look out for the early warning signs of stroke and support stroke survivors and their families in any way they can.

Liz and Justina are kindly donating the proceeds of ‘Unplanned Paths: A Stroke of Luck Life’ to Headway when it is released in May.
