Kathleen Jordan was a vibrant businesswoman, mother and grandmother until one morning in August 2011, she suffered a massive stroke and her world was turned upside. Her memoir Standing Up! gives a detailed and compelling insight into the effects of major stroke and the vital support and advocacy needed when she could not stand up for herself. Kathleen Jordan, with Vicki Steggall, recounts her journey through stroke, from the acute trauma, through to the stroke ward, short and long term rehabilitation units and, finally, her amazing recovery to return to semi-normalcy and everyday life. Jordan and Steggall reinforce the powerful role advocacy, family support and determination play in recovery and give specific strategies and advice to families who are feeling under-supported by medical limitations.
