Sharing our story, supporting new research

At least $5 from the sale of each book (paperback or e-book) will go directly to support the 'More Than Words' Gavel Club in their great work helping people living with Aphasia. 

Aphasia is an impairment of language, which affects the production or comprehension of speech and the ability to read or write. Aphasia usually results from a stroke, particularly in older individuals, however it can also be caused by traumatic brain injury or tumours.

Research on aphasia shows that talking skills can improve with practice, and the Gavel Club exists to provide an opportunity to practice in the company of others living with the same impairments.
