Catherine’s grandmother suffered a stroke at 73 years old and she was left with right-sided weakness.  Her speech was not impaired, but she did receive treatment for the residual loss of strength. Her mother, at age 70, also suffered a stroke diagnosed as a TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack).  She was sitting in her car when it happened.  Catherine recalled that she drove home and complained of feeling very dizzy, lightheaded and was disoriented.  She was taken to the Emergency Room and diagnosed with a TIA. She was given medications and never experienced another event after her initial TIA.

My name is Nate Moran and I was once a homeless veteran on the streets of NYC. For two years I slept in doorways, park benches, trains and subways. Anywhere I felt safe from the dangers of the streets......... 

From the time I was in second grade, winning a chocolate bunny for dancing in school I kept my love of dancing my whole life. I was inspired by Bill Robinson, the Nicholas Brothers, Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Gregory Hines , just to name a few. Being raised by my grandmother, her and I always had the love of the art of dancing between us. Together with my sister and my mother we would dance in the living room and enjoy our lives.  

I went into the service in 1979 and two tours in Germany.  READ MORE
