BURNABY (NEWS 1130) — Bret “The Hitman” Hart is in town, but he’s not here to talk about wrestling.
Hart is attending events in Burnaby and Vancouver to raise awareness about living with a disability. He’s using his experience as a stroke survivor to discuss the challenges.

He had a stroke in 2002, and says it was ‘the biggest fight I ever had.’
“I just remember how much of a struggle it was to get through that recovery, and I try to let people know that strokes are the worst things to go through, but you can come out of it,” he says.
“I’m happy to say that I had a pretty good recovery from my stroke. I got probably close to 90 per cent back.”
Tomorrow, the former WWE champion will be hosting the “Rock for Dimes” fundraiser, which raises money for people with disabilities.
