HER TRUE VOICE

When Secily Wilson suffered a series of ischemic attacks, she had to spend the next six weeks relearning how to talk. For a woman who made her living talking in front of a camera, she discovered she had to listen to her body to overcome such setbacks and be in the limelight again. What has she learned? "We are not superwomen." She now shares her story with other women as part of her mission to educate them about the warning signs of stroke and heart disease.

Secily's dedication to herself and others is one reason she is featured on the cover of our November/December issue of Growing Bolder Magazine. Not only can you read her amazing story, but you can find all sorts of hope, inspiration, and possibility in the pages as well. Pick up your free issue at any Central Florida Walgreens.
