STROKEES’ “ARCHAELOGICAL ADVENTURE”
Twenty NASAM PJ strokees, carers & volunteers spent the afternoon of 11 June 2008 with Indiana Jones in the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. As they sat in the plush cinema seats at GSC Golden Screens in Mid-Valley Megamall, the strokees braced themselves for the archaelogical adventures that befell Indiana Jones and his friends.
BYE, BYE CECILIA
Strokees of NASAM Ampang held a farewell for Speech Therapist Cecilia Santiago on 13 June 2008. The incoming President of Rotary Club of Ampang, Mr Sunny Low, with fellow Rotarians Vincent & Horst were among those present. Mr Sunny Low pledged a donation of RM10,000 from the Rotary Club of Ampang for the Speech Therapy project.
The strokees dedicated 2 songs to Cecilia. Physio-in-charge Annie gave a short speech while speechies also said a line or two. The atmosphere was very emotional as Annie presented a gift to Cecilia on behalf of the strokees.
We wish Cecilia and hubby all the best as they start a new life in the UK.

THE HILLS WERE ALIVE…
with the excited sounds from 70 strokees, carers, volunteers and staff of NASAM Ampang & PJ from 24 – 26 June 2008.
The trip to Cameron Highlands, which took much planning, went smoothly with everyone chipping in to prepare the barbecue dinner on the first night. There was much camaraderie and loads of fun & laughter as everyone enjoyed the evening.
Among the places of interest visited were the multi-crop farm, rose garden, tea plantation, honey bee apiary farm and also KEA Garden, where everyone had a field time shopping for fresh vegetables.
On the way home on 26 June 2008, a stopover at NASAM Ipoh was made. On hand to welcome the group were Michael, the Physio as well as Admin Assistant, Maureen.
The group picked up 57 pomeloes, 36 salted chickens and some 40 packets of biscuits before they headed home safely.
Early rehabilitation is crucial. Every stoke survivor must seek rehabilitation treatment as soon as possible. More »
