This Posted to Stroke Smart by Kevin Vicker Sep 24 2013
About a month after a major stroke in January 2012, U.S. Senator Mark Kirk received a letter of encouragement from Jackson Cunningham, a fellow stroke survivor. Kirk says Jackson’s letter was by far the best he received. The two quickly became pen pals and continue to stay in touch. Jackson, now 11, recently visited Sen. Kirk in Washington.
