Stan is currently in rehab following a stroke earlier this year. He is making good progress and is becoming mobile again but has yet to recover his speech. A major frustration for him!

Stan McNally

Heard good news today. Stan's recovery after his speech is progressing well. He is now home, is able to talk again and is even using the telephone. Memory is recovering slowly but he is now able to recognise the names of former colleagues and to recall related incidents.

Quite amazing considering his condition immediately after the stroke. Good wishes for a full recovery, Stan.
