When her husband, Jesús, suffered a disabling stroke almost three years ago, my sister, Bianca, found their lives permanently changed. Everything they knew about navigating their day-to-day had to be altered.
Travel, among many others, demanded a whole new approach. This is especially true for big cities like New York and Boston. Some of the challenges were sort of expected and they were able to prepare for; the others, however, were only realized when they presented themselves.
In a blog post contributed to Culture with Travel, Bianca shares the struggles she and Jesús encountered and how they powered through.
