No More Bad Days: Brisa Alfaro

No More Bad Days: Brisa Alfaro

undefined undefined undefined undefined undefined

Completely present, but unable to move or speak – that’s the reality Brisa Alfaro found herself in after suffering a pons stroke at just 32-years-old. Trapped in her own body – known as locked-in syndrome – Brisa was given a less than 1% chance of returning to any kind of normal life.

But that just wasn’t acceptable to Brisa.

Brisa joins Continuum as our first guest to share her incredible story of perseverance. She tells of the surreal experience of figuring out she was “locked-in,” the moment when her doctors began to believe recovery was possible, and what made that unlikely recovery possible. Brisa then explains “No More Bad Days” and her desired destiny – the purpose for which she believes she survived – and what her future holds.

Brisa’s story is one that everyone needs to hear. No matter who you are, there’s something in it for you. May we all have no more bad days!
