Stroke Recovery Video featuring “My Wife Paola” – OPA

“Paola Sophia Palermo: even after 27 years, she’s still the most beautiful woman I know.

Now, every day is a brand-new day. There’s always something new to overcome. Paola is working hard; she’s pushing forward. Step by step, she’s moving again and painting.

Now, all I want to do is be there for her. Because no matter what life throws at us, we’ll always be together.”

The Ontario Physiotherapy Association (OPA) shares the story of how physiotherapy can help after a stroke. Learn more about their #PhysioHelpsLives campaign.
