A Halifax man who lost all movement in his left side after a stroke is proving that there is ‘Life after Stroke’ by taking part in a fundraising walk with his newborn baby girl.
Paul Thomas, 36, will be pushing his six month old baby girl Maddelyn Amelia in her pram, when he takes part in the Step out for Stroke fundraising walk at Roundhay Park on May 31, from 12.00pm.
Paul suffered from a stroke in December 2012 and lost all movement to the left side of his body.
Although he has started walking again, Paul still has limited control in that side of his body.
Paul said: “Step out for Stroke is a fun walk that everyone can be part of, no matter what your age or fitness level.
“It’s a great opportunity to not only have a family day out but to meet other stroke survivors and their families.
“Since my stroke in 2012, I’ve been taking things one step at a time and the walk will show just how far I’ve come.”
The fundraiser will be in aid of the Stroke Association and it will take place as part of Action on Stroke Month.
