John Kawie, having suffered a stroke himself, gives permission to others to laugh at a very serious subject. He also provides insight as to what a survivor goes through on the road to recovery. As a caregiver I can't believe he had me laughing at things that make me furious. My father, who has aphasia, loved that someone 'knew' where he was coming from. We were laughing and crying. It's a powerful, hip, funny, and touching show. "Brain Freeze" has attitude and is inspirational - I would highly recommend it to all.

What a great show. It's hopeful, it's funny, it's sad and it's smart. I'm a PT for a rehab facility in Baltimore and our staff, TBI and stroke survivors and their families were all at the viewing. Everyone found something they could relate to, but most importantly we left feeling inspired by John's message that there is life after stroke... and that we're all valid. I would consider this a "must see" for anyone, with or without a disability.

I bought this not knowing what to expect, and as a fellow stroke survivor I was pleasantly surprised. John's humor about his disability has backbone. It has smarts. It showed me (personally) that nothing is impossible when you choose to go on with your life. My non-stroke friends (who watched it with me) found John brought levity to an important issue for ALL of us be it a stroke, cancer, AIDS, or just hitting "50". I would find this a compelling show whether or not you've suffered a stroke. I know we enjoyed every moment.
