The Coffee Guys
The only thing Terry and Harvey had in common was that they both had a stroke. Harvey was a small equipment mechanic and Terry was an oil and gas executive. But a friendship was born; so much so, that after a day of intense rehabilitation they decided to head over to the local coffee shop. More remarkable, though, Terry and Harvey have aphasia (difficulty communicating). ARBI provided them the tools, strategies and confidence to venture on their own and grab a cup of coffee – like any two friends would.
