Garrett's Story


Garrett Mendez is a young stroke survivor from New Jersey. He has just launched his personal web page to increase awareness and educate about stroke.

Garrett wrote:

"I am twenty three years old and a stroke survivor. I had no risk factors, no warning signs. On November 26, 2005, my life changed in the blink of an eye. Four years ago, I was a freshman at Western New England College in Springfield, Mass. I had a pretty typical life. I was having a great time in college, I was playing hockey on a Junior Hockey team. Sports had always been an important part of my life. I learned to skate soon after I learned to walk and had played hockey since I was four."

Fruits and Vegies in your diet can be an adventure...

Sometimes we can get too set in our ways or are intimidated to try new things, especially when it comes to food. Take a look around your grocery store, visit an ethnic food shop, health-food outlet or stroll through your local farmers’ market for new vegetables, fruit and other foods you’ve never tried before. You can find recipes for almost anything from artichokes to tofu by searching the web, going to libraries or buying new cookbooks.
