Brain & Nerve Patient Stories
Abington Memorial Hospital is honored to share with you the heartfelt, real-life accounts of our patients.
You will find some extraordinary stories of individuals who turned to Abington for their health care needs, including anecdotes of doctors who exceeded expectations, nurses who provided nurturing care, and support staff who went the extra mile. It's these stories from our patients that tell our story.
And, no one tells a story better than the people who lived through it.
Having the power to heal is a tremendous responsibility - and a great privilege. Having the power to inspire in the process is overwhelming. We hope you'll be empowered by what you learn from our patient's stories.
Attention All Stroke Survivors...
Please join our Stroke Survivor Volunteer Program
If you are a stroke survivor and have ever wondered "Why me?"-- you have what it takes to be a stroke survivor volunteer at Abington Memorial Hospital's Stroke Center. In fact, you now have a terrific opportunity to make your stroke experience meaningful for others.
These special volunteers lend a helping hand to other stroke survivors and their caregivers. You have knowledge and experience that can directly support and benefit others.
If you would like to become a stroke survivor volunteer at AMH, please call Volunteer Services, at 215-481-2490 or Debi Murphy, stroke program coordinator, at 215-481-3627 for an application. After you apply, you will be called for an interview and scheduled for a three-hour volunteer orientation session. We are very excited about this program and are looking forward to hearing from you.
Share your personal stroke experience and recovery story on our AMH stroke center website
We would like to invite you to share your stroke experience and inspirational thoughts on our hospital website (as a stroke survivor and/or caregiver) with other stroke victims and families.
As a stroke survivor, you have a unique story about your experience with stroke and your recovery. What happened to you? How did you deal with it? There may be a specific challenge you may want to share or inspirational, motivating thoughts for recovery. You may want to discuss how stroke has changed your life, how you survived and re-created your life. Here is your chance to help others recover from stroke. You can share your story (and even a personal photo) here on the AMH stroke website. You may also keep your story anonymous. We will post stories and bios in a new, dedicated section called "Personal Inspirational Stories from Stroke Survivors and Caregivers."
If you are interested in sharing your personal experience with stroke, please call Debi Murphy, stroke program coordinator, 215-481-3627, or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
