Hitchin woman meets Strictly Come Dancing stars at stroke awareness night

A STROKE survivor has been mixing it with some famous faces as she continues to raise awareness of the condition.

After suffering two strokes which left her paralysed from the neck down at 26, Sue Ross has been speaking about her experience in front of celebrities including Blue Peter presenter Konnie Huq and Strictly Come Dancing stars Brenda Cole and Camilla Dallerup.

Hosted in aid of the Stroke Association by Nick Ede, dubbed “the Simon Cowell of the PR world”, the Hitchin resident attended ‘A Night with Nick’ in London to explain how the Association can support those affected by strokes.

The 43-year-old, who has been offering free ‘Lifegeta’ workshops in Comet country since March to offer emotional support to stroke sufferers, said: “Seventeen years ago when I had my stroke I thought it was ‘game over’ but here I am today being able to talk about Stroke Awareness and help people move forward emotionally with my workshops.

“Without the support of The Comet the message that there is ‘life after stroke’ wouldn’t have reached so many people.”
