Life After Stroke Awards – Cheyenne McLaughlin looks back at last year’s experience

Life After Stroke Awards - Cheyenne McLaughlin

Cheyenne McLaughlin was the winner of the Carer’s Award at the 2014 Life After Stroke Awards.

Thirteen-year-old Cheyenne’s little sister Caitlin had a stroke before she was born. As a result of her stroke Caitlin developed extensive brain damage. Cheyenne has taken a very special role in Caitlin’s life, by becoming her eyes, her voice and her carer.

In a guest blog for the Stroke Association, Cheyenne talks about what she has been up to since picking up her award last year, including a special visit to Pineapple Dance Studios.

“After that we went to a dance room where I was taught an 11 step routine. I picked up on it quite fast!”
