Thank you for being interested in my book. It means that you are part of a community comprised of people with aneurysms, traumatic brain injuries, and stroke survivors. We also deal with the people who love and care for their loved ones. Chances are it is a community that you didn't seek. I think you'll find it's an important resource.


There is some good news for those of you who enter this place. 

  • Members here are genuine.

  • Stroke survivors are taken back to their bare bones -- sometimes what you get is all too real for the patient.

  • In this community, compassion for the stroke survivor and the caregiver needs to rule the day -- every day.

Stroke FORWARD: How to Become Your Own Healthcare Advocate . . .One Step at an Time is available for sale now!

In this one-of-a-kind collection of stories about surviving and thriving after stroke, people from all over the U.S. tell it like it is about the tragedies and triumphs they experienced after stroke. They speak with candor about their worst days, their grit and resilience, and the profound contentment and unexpected bursts of enthusiasm they feel for life today.

Written to give solace to current stroke survivors, the 26 stories in Just Say “Yes” to Life! Detail how these survivors coped, and which therapies helped them most. Readers will be inspired by a teenager who rebounded well enough to enroll in college a few years after his stroke, a physician who reinvented herself as a writer and performer, and a forester who created a chair the world’s never seen before, one that allows those who use wheelchairs to navigate rugged wilderness terrain.

Authentic, vulnerable, and brave, the tales give stroke survivors, and those who love them, hope for the best possible recovery and encourage them to never give up!

One morning, Marcia Moran woke up, and nothing was the same as before. Without warning, this physically fit, active, animated woman became incommunicative and immobile due to a massive, debilitating stroke.


Just as suddenly, she and her husband were thrown into the labyrinth of the American healthcare system without a clue as to how to be certain she would get the care she needed.


Stroke Forward is not only Marcia's telling of her amazing, inspiring recovery, it is also a searchable guidebook for finding and getting the treatment needed to recover.


Clearly written in an easy, personal style, this book will inspire, advise, and assist anyone struggling with a disability.
