My name is Aviva Cohen, PhD (University of Essex).
I have been a researcher, lecturer and communications consultant for more than 20 years. I have spent even longer practising and teaching karate.
I fell in love with my karate master, Steve, many years ago and we have two little girls, aged 10 and 4. In 2006, Steve had a massive stroke. Since then, I have dedicated myself to finding treatments that will improve his quality of life.
This blog is a record of our progress.
