WELCOME TO CUDDLE SPOONS!
I DESIGNED CUDDLE SPOONS!
I suffered a severe stroke when I was 26 years old; way back in 1988. The doctors told my family I’d probably not survive and if I did – I’d be either a mentally disabled person or totally paralyzed. WELL I proved them partially WRONG! I had to learn how to swallow, breath, use a bathroom, move my arms and legs and laugh all over again. I sure did a lot of crying and there was a great deal of pain too. But I am not paralyzed. I went through physical therapy and got as well as I possibly could but I will always be confined to a motorized wheelchair. It hasn’t been easy but I survive. I created these spoons to make people happy. To make ME HAPPY. Being severely disabled can be depressing. Filled with life altering, never ending depression. I chose to create something to do that would give me some hope.
I went back to school after my stroke and received to degrees with honors. I now hope to encourage others to SMILE and ENJOY their lives through my spoons.
It turns out they also give some people a chance to FEED THEMSELVES for the first time. Teach kids how to eat with silverware.
