Survivors Helping Survivors Connect with people who know what you are going through.
Hi! My name is Joanie Peckels. I had a carotid dissection 22 years ago when I was 35. When I had my stroke I was totally paralyzed on my right side and I could not speak at all for 2 weeks. During that time I could not read or add 1 and 1 together. I had two little kids aged 6 and 8. I was right handed but now I’m left handed for the second half of my life! I have come a long way and now, I volunteer at PeaceHeath SW hospital as a Stroke Ambassador and I am a grandma! I have helped run the PeaceHealth Stroke and Brain Injury Group with the Stroke Coordinators there for about 14 years.

My contact info is 360-907-4457 or

Hi Stroke & Brain Injury Group!!

I know the pictures I sent Sunday were all screwed up!  I think I just put too many in.  So I have broken them up into 3 groups.  You should have already received group one.  If the pictures just show up as little jpeg images just scroll down to the bottom of the email.  There's a "view online".  Click on that and it should work!  

Thank you for your patience!  Joanie
