One of the sponsored groups is the Stroke Association, which provides 498,771 financial support to vulnerable individuals and their families, helping them to persevere to meet new people and share experiences, and to get used to counseling and events.
San Ohare, a 45-year-old sports coach, had a stroke in August 2020. He needs emotional support during his recovery and has received counsel to help him adjust to life.
“It was a wonderful feeling,” Shawn said. I was at work and my friend immediately noticed something was wrong. My facial expressions changed and my face fell to one side and my speech suddenly changed. I was rushed to the hospital, where I was treated for about a week.
The big thing for me was to accept how I was competent and strong in the past and now based on other people. The accommodation was great for me. I always go to the gym, play soccer, run a marathon, and generally exercise until I can no longer go beyond that. My family is great but I realized that I could open up a lot of things in counseling sessions that I could not talk to my loved ones, and it helped me to agree on everything.
“After the consultation, I felt I had a platform to start over. I am happy that this project has been funded so that others can receive my help. I started teaching a big point in March and now I look forward to the new school year, this may not be possible without the support of the stroke association.
Ursula Ferguson, service and participation leader at Stroke Association, said: “Stroke survivors and caregivers tell us that they are emotionally struggling with the effects of stroke, and this national lottery grant allows us to connect with NI Chest, Heart and Stroke to use our skills to help people throughout Northern Ireland . Thanks to the National Lottery players for truly changing the attitudes of people and families affected by stroke.
