My mom had a stroke more than a year ago. Since then we started looking for recovery programs for her. My sister found Valerie Greene's website and story on the internet. I emailed Valerie and she responded to me very fast. She gave us some basic recommendations in her first email and suggested to have online meeting with my mom via skype. I was amazed at Valerie's energy and enthusiasm, I saw that it was really something important for her and she loves her mission. She puts a lot in it and I really feel her support.
I live separately from my mom who lives with my 2 sisters in different city and my sisters speak very limited English as their native language is Russian and I told Valerie about it and somehow Valerie found a Russian translator to translate everything to my mom and sisters. I thank Valerie as well as my luck that I met her online. Valerie inspired my mom and motivated her. She told my mom her story and gave some helpful recommendations. I'm very happy that the World has such people like Valerie who is a perfect role model and who always inspires the people around, shows that everything is possible! Thank you very much, Valerie!

I was 25 and in the best physical shape of my life and I had a stroke. My stroke left me unable to physically function properly. Not contented and impatient in my progress, I went searching in the internet and found Valerie Greene's Bcenter for stroke resources and support. Valerie responded quickly to my call for help. She encouraged me to never give up and to explore a number of unique therapies outlined on the Bcenter. Valerie's recovery is something I aspire for. Her mission to inspire stroke survivors has reached survivors in the Philippines and perhaps all over the world. Her optimism and encouragement has made me more determined to fight my stroke and get my life back to normal. It truly makes a difference on my outlook in life. Thank you Valerie!

I was in such a depression after suffering a very destructive stroke until I read Valerie Greene's book “Conquering Stroke". It opened my eyes to new treatments and gave me hope to recover so much more. Her book should be read by EVERYONE from the Stroke Survivor, their family, friends, caregivers, doctors and therapists.

Since my stroke in 2000, Valerie has been a light of hope to me and to many others who have suffered the same. There is no doubt in my mind that her personal battle was all in God's plan so that she might inspire and encourage others just as she did me.

The Lord lead me to read Valerie Greene's book “Conquering Stroke". I absorbed it quickly and contacted her to share my overwhelmingly positive response… we met and I will “never be the same." Her life is totally dedicated to helping people of all ages who are recovering from a stroke. She shared many insights and taught me how proper hydration was the foundation of health and healing. My recovery is progressing faster than anyone could have imagined. Thank you God for bringing healing to my body. Thank you for leading me to Valerie and blessing her with your light.

What an amazing story and resource guide that Valerie Greene has provided. Conquering Stroke is a must read for anyone affected by stroke. How I wish I had this book before my wife suffered a stroke.

Just to find out that other people have gone through what you are going through and see their recovery helps you to work harder. My wife and I heard Valerie speak at two different stroke events we attended. She brings hope and love to stroke survivors.
As a 35-year-old single mother of two young boys, my life as I knew it changed in an instant when I suffered a massive stroke. I was taken 40 miles by ambulance and had brain surgery immediately to save my life . I was paralyzed on my left side and unable to speak. After I was discharged from the hospital, I needed to find a young stroke survivor who could give me hope. I read Valerie Greene's book “Conquering Stroke" and it gave me so much hope that I knew some day I had to meet her in person to thank her. I flew from North Dakota to Florida and my cousin and I had the privilege of spending a day with Valerie. I am hopeful that someday I will be a part of the Bcenter's team and that Valerie's vision of a world-class stroke facility in the Orlando area for stroke survivors becomes a reality. Valerie has dedicated her life for all of us stroke survivors and I am so grateful for her.
