Hemiplegia Awareness Week 2014
Thank you for a fantastic Hemiplegia Awareness Week. Do you want to know what happened each day of the week? Take it all in, visually.
See Mitten Monday photos from our lovely supporters. Highlights include mitten mug shots from Paralympian Rhys Jones, TV presenter and comedian Xander Armstrong as well as HemiHelp patron and MSP Siobhan McMahon's photo with Falkirk Football Club!
See Acrostic Tuesday photos from real people. Parents, children, siblings, and friends told us what hemiplegia means to them. Highlights include an inspiring acrostic from HemiHelp Patron and MSP Siobhan McMahon – as well as from her brother and sister. And continuing the family trend, heartfelt acrostics from Paralympian Rhys Jones, his sister, and his mother too!
Watch it Wednesday
This year's video is introduced by Al Murray and it looks at some of the less obvious issues that can affect people with hemiplegia. We want more people to have an understanding of the hidden effects of the condition so please WATCH the video and SHARE it with as many of your friends, family and colleagues as you can!
Put Up a Poster Thursday
Yesterday we were raising hemiplegia awareness by putting up one of HemiHelp's posters, in 1) the most number of places, and 2) the most original place!
Sweet Talking Friday
A sweet end to a week of hemipegia awareness-raising. Supporters baking, selling, eating -- and most importantly, chatting and sharing -- about hemiplegia
