As someone who has suffered from aphasia myself as a result of a debilitating automobile accident when I was 25 years old, I have a special affinity for those who are now living with this condition. I have been able to overcome most of the speech and language deficiencies that I experienced then (I was so "out-of-it I don't even remember that I couldn't communicate or walk for 2-3 months!!!). I was able to complete the doctorate degree in music I had started and have had very satisfying teaching and performing opportunities through the years. I give great appreciation for the care I received from speech and physical therapists after the accident and for the patience and understanding I have felt continually from friends and family. Needless to say, my heart goes out to those who experience aphasia in any form, and I am delighted to be involved with the Aphasia Center of West Texas. I have great thanks and respect for all the directors and volunteers of this outstanding organization, and I realize the significance of the care and "heart" that is always felt inside these walls! - Joan Lucas
