- Identity Theft: Rediscovering Ourselves After Stroke – Debra E. Meyerson, Danny Zuckerman, May 2019; available at libraries, bookstores and as audiobooks
- An award-winning book that follows Meyerson’s journey to recover from a severe stroke that initially left her physically incapacitated and unable to speak. It provides realistic expectations for the hard work needed to regain everyday capabilities and focuses on the less frequently documented emotional journey in recovery. Virtually every survivor is haunted by questions like: “Who am I now?” and “How do I rebuild a meaningful and rewarding life?” after losing so much of what they had before—capabilities, careers and jobs, relationships, and more. This book is full of hope for survivors—from stroke or other injuries—as well as their families and support networks.

Stroke Information & Resource Guide
A stroke is a serious and sometimes life-threatening condition. It is a leading cause of disability and the fourth leading cause of death among Americans. Until recently, if you were to experience a stroke, supportive care was all that was available. But now, stroke management has progressed to a point where a stroke can be stopped in its path.
