Description

When Judy Mozersky, a young, beautiful and vivacious university student, suffered a totally incapacitating stroke at the age of nineteen, her plans and dreams were shattered and her life could not have looked grimmer. Unable to move or speak, but with the thinking part of her brain unaffected, Judy was LOCKED IN a body she could no longer control. Yet she defied the predictions of doctors who thought she would never be able to breathe on her own or leave a hospital setting of total dependency. Five years after her stroke, she lives in her own apartment in Ottawa, is learning to operate a computer, and takes a lively interest in the world around her. This is her story, told in her own words: words "blinked" out letter by letter in a feat of remarkable courage and determination. It is also an inspiring look at a close and devoted family offering its support and coming to terms with a terrible tragedy.

Author Biography

Judy Mozersky was a young, beautiful and vivacious university student, when she suffered a totally incapacitating stroke at the age of nineteen. Unable to move or speak, but with the thinking part of her brain unaffected, Judy was locked in a body she could no longer control. Yet she defied the predictions of doctors who thought she would never be able to breathe on her own or leave a hospital setting of total dependency. Five years after her stroke, she lives in her own apartment in Ottawa, is learning to operate a computer, and takes a lively interest in the world around her. Judy's ordeal serves to remind us of life's unpredictability and the power and tenacity of human will. She taught us all a great deal." Dr. P.D. Vaillancourt, attending neurologist.
