Dr. Edgar Alster – An Advocate and Fighter – Learning To Speak Again


This is a Finding Words story!

Dr. Edgar Alster suffered a stroke in 2012 and upon waking from a coma, could not speak, had no mobility and could not feed himself. But as he says, nothing stands in his way. With fighting spirit, he regain his abilities.

Today, he is still working on his communication at MorseLife Aphasia Therapy program. His speech is better and improving daily. As an advocate, his goal is to educate people about aphasia – it has nothing to do with intelligence – we just communicate differently.
