My “Stroke” of Luck

On April 30th, The Tower Theater and Stroke Awareness Oregon
welcomes Diane Barnes to the Tower Theater as she shares her story of
surviving a catastrophic event, and will to overcome.

As a physician, Diane was well aware of the statistics
behind strokes and what came with them. Diane knew that the
average person who has a stroke loses 1.9 million brain cells
every minute a stroke goes untreated. And she knew she had the
worst headache of her life. But, it would be 20 hours later,
before Barnes would go to a hospital.

In a spellbinding and funny look at love, family, and seemingly
insurmountable obstacles, Diane shares her amazing story
with us. A single, adoptive mother of special needs and gifted
sons, Diane knew she had to overcome this tragedy, and
forge a new identity. You can’t miss this story of humor, grit
and victory. This play is for anyone who faces challenges…
and don’t we all.
