This is one wonderful precious women that has fought for animals for years. I was lucky to meet her at the San Diego Zoo Endangered Animal Party in 1989!

Joan has done wonders for animals!

The importance of an objective, and will power - and good support.
And she shares, so others can dig in themselves for the confidence and will power

Thanks, Marilyn

Joan Embery always fascinated me when she would come out on the Johnny Carson show to talk about different animals, and of course it was a "hoot' of a learning experience.
Seeing the woman she is today inspires me so much more. So I have to thank Joan and you Marilyn for Caring2share her story with us. Joan is definitely back in the saddle and seeing her riding the way she did, so fearlessly, is something I hope to always remember.
ps I had a mini stroke in 1996, the same year my twin sister Rowena passed away. I was "furniture walking" for 6 months and have vertigo to this day. I didn't have to work hard the way Joan did, because after about a year I was able to comfortably work, drive a car and do everything as though nothing had happened.
except for the vertigo.

Great video, a very well presented explanation of what a stroke is and how to cope. Thank you for posting.
