Carole Laurin

Carole Laurin survived several strokes at age 42. Half paralyzed and unable to continue in her teaching career, she was motivated to set an example for her two children and relearn to sit and walk again. With the support of family and friends, and more than 400 medical and therapy appointments in the first year alone, Carole overcame hemiplegia. A writer and artist, Carole does volunteer and advocacy work on behalf of stroke survivors and sits as a member of the CPSR’s Knowledge Translation Advisory Committee.
