My name is Marie Pacetta. At 74 years old I can look back on a diversified career including teaching, restoring several homes, opening and running a restaurant, publishing tourist magazines and even producing my own cooking show. Two years ago I had a stroke, leading to my retirement.
Introducing Marie Pacetta, a 74-year-old fulltime resident of Florida and one of many survivors (not victims) of stroke. She is now basking in the warm Florida sun and sharing the story of her before and after stroke life. And her tale of glorious nonconformity and successful business accomplishments speaks to everyone who has ever fought relentlessly to be who they are. Ms. Pacetta intertwines the tale of her past and present life and fervently tries to maintain an optimistic view of her future despite her new-found challenges.
