Few years back I met a nice guy called Ian Starkey an avid Chelsea fan at a Stroke Association event. He had been a black cab driver who had suffered a stroke. We chatted and I agreed he should write a book and encouraged him to join a creative writing class. Ian’s book ‘From Black Cabbing to Blackouts’ has now been published and available from Amazon. An honest and insightful read into his recovery and experience.
As a stroke survivor myself I try where possible to help others and of course promote the excellent work of the Stroke Association and other stroke support charities such as InterAct Stroke Support. (please see my website for further information http://www.anniemanning.com)
