Summary
When Doris Brett's fit, healthy 59-year-old husband Martin had a stroke, they were unexpectedly thrown into a journey of discovery. What began as a minor stroke turned into a golf-ball sized blood clot on his brain, followed by a life-threatening heart condition. Later they had to deal with the return of Doris' ovarian cancer. However - due largely to Doris' research into brain plasticity and the neurotherapy techniques she implemented -Martin's recovery was exceptional and he has now returned to all of his pre-stroke activities. The Twelfth Raven is a literary journey through a series of crises, and an inspirational story of recovery after stroke. Doris Brett's brave and unflinching memoir offers hope to the hundreds of thousands of people affected by stroke, through the active intervention Doris conducted and the excellent results that were achieved
