"A hobby is a regular activity that is done for enjoyment, typically during one's leisure time. Hobbies can include collecting themed items and objects, engaging in creative and artistic pursuits, playing sports, or pursuing other amusements." Many stroke survivors find great solace in taking up hobbies which are also an important activity in rehabilitation following their stroke. We feel an exhibition of the different varieties could inspire and encourage others. Read the entire letter here.
