Short but effective for me. I felt emotional after seeing it. I don't know why but I did. I had my stroke two years ago last Sunday. Right now it is the acceptance and patience part of my mantra "Persistence. Determination. Courage. Patience. Acceptance. Every movement counts." that I have to work on. Hopefully this TV advert will help to gain more recognition and understanding of stroke and its life changing and devastating effects. Best of luck everyone! xxx
