Rebecca Beaumont

My name is Rebecca Ellen Beaumont and I am from Hazel Grove, Stockport. I am 22 years old and live at home with my parents, sister and fiancé. I was training to be a hairdresser but in October 2011 I suffered an ischemic stroke, which left me with left side paralysis, and I am currently still in recovery. My hope is to raise as much awareness as possible for stroke survivors and the Stroke Association.
