"How this Stroke Survivor's Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) turned him into an Accidental Entrepreneur"

  Stroke survivor creates a fun meaningful gift from his life changing experience.  01/01/2019 Houston Texas.  Cuddle Spoons had been called “The Perfect Spoon” by many. My Cuddles Spoons are fun, meaningful and practical, and are the only keepsake gift ever created for two people to enjoy together. Even though I designed Cuddles for couples, the comfortable shape and design makes them the perfect eating aide for the disabled, elderly and children with hand/arm control issues. Yes, I can agree with others by saying they are the perfect spoon because I personally designed them and use them. After my stroke...

Where did the good people go?

I’m trying to share my spiritual experience with everyone in a fun adorable and meaningful way; my Cuddle Spoons. Here is the subject in the simplest way that I can say it “Don’t take your life for granted”. I survived a server stroke, since that day forward the odds had always been against me. Even though I tried everything in the world to get back on my feet and to live a normal life, I failed. I was lucky to keep my creative mind and thinking strength but my physical ability is SAD. Sorry for trailing off the subject of...

Who am I?  by Ken Vantroba  AKA CuddleMan

My life drastically changed in December of 1988.  Why? At the age of 26, I suffered a severe and debilitating stroke that immediately left me unable to move, breath or eat.  I was also unable to ever work again.  That left me totally dependent upon state and federal assistance.  I don’t like that to this day! My family wasn’t prepared!  I wasn’t prepared!  We had to adjust on the fly, so to speak.  Needless to say, life became very difficult.  Since my stroke happened in 1988 there wasn’t much the medical community could do for me, so my life was...

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and the Accidental Entrepreneur

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and the Accidental Entrepreneur   It’s a well known fact that when a person has some sort of brain injury their thinking ability will fail them first.  When I began to recover from my stroke I always worried that another attack would happen to me.  To put my mind at ease I would periodically create tests or challenges to keep my mind busy. Funny thing - coming up with the tests was a great challenge all on its’ own.  After 26 years of regular mind testing and challenges one day I came up with a real...
