Stroke Awareness Day
About the Healings in Motion Founder: Mary Ann Nicholson
Mary Ann Nicholson is a twenty-five year veteran in Television and Radio Broadcasting. She has worked in broadcasting in many positions including production, sales, management and
Ms. Nicholson served on many boards throughout her career. She was especially pleased at the work that was accomplished while serving over 13 years as a member of the Board of Directors for Abilitys First , an agency that serves people with special needs through-out Southern California. Little did she know that this experience would prepare her for this phase of her life.
After being married just over one year, Ms. Nicholson experienced a personal painful journey of care giving. She became a care-giver to her husband as he suffered an incurable cancer.
In her efforts to support and aid her husband, Ms. Nicholson searched for information available about the disease and possible treatment She and her husband did attend a spiritual health retreat in Tennessee for one month and that journey helped extend the life of her husband. However, the severity of his condition prevailed. Ms. Nicholsons exhaustive efforts finally led to a possible treatment at the M.D. Anderson Medical Cancer Center, but it was too late. Her husband succumbed to the pancreatic cancer the following day. Durring the time that she was mourning her loss,she suffered a brain aneurysm, including an acute sub-arachnoid bleed and also a stroke . Subsequently she had a Grand Mal seizure and a frozen shoulder for one year. She became a child again much to her dismay.
She endured having to re-learn skills that we all take for granted, including walking and talking. Attempting to clap was a painful effort for her. Over time and a lot of diligent work, Ms. Nicholson eventually started driving her car. She studied very hard to earn her drivers license again, attaining a score of 100 on the written test during a thorough one- on- one obstacle course DMV demands of people with severe brain damage.
Paying it Forward
Having joined a stroke support group in Stockton, California, she met a member, who was 50 years old at the time. He had suffered a stroke 25 years prior. He had also been driving without a license for over 20 years. She worked with him each week and arranged an appointment with the Department of Vehicles for him to take his test. He passed the examination and driving test and is now driving legally.
Mrs. Nicholson found that as she helped others, she too healed with her cognitive skills, her ability to recall information as well as overcoming many other obstacles. Using the Pay it Forward model, Mrs. Nicholson continues to heal as she works to support others with disabilities. She works to sensitize Americans to people who have special needs. In doing so , people are encouraged to move beyond their disabilities.
