his left arm finally came un-stuck from his chest and his
hand at last opened from a tight fist; he was still going to
rehab. I asked him, ‘How in the world do you keep going
to therapy?’ He said, ‘I do it for other people. I do it for
my family.’And I believe that’s true, we get better for
“Don’t let the stroke define the rest of your life. You
have to keep working. Despite the fatigue and despite
the failures, you have to keep working.”
Eric teamed up with documentary filmmaker Kuen Pyo “Root” Park
to make a hronicling Eric’s fight to survive his three
strokes, his struggle with rehab, and his gratitude for the support
of family and friends. Also titled A Piece of My Mind, it is a candid,
funny and hopeful look at one survivor’s journey.
