My Story…

November 2020, I was preparing lunch in the kitchen where I was cutting strawberries. I thought I accidentally dropped the knife. Suddenly, I started to see double, and then started to have tunnel vision. I decided I needed to go sit down, when I went to pivot I realized I couldn't move my right leg. I went to pick up my cell phone, but couldn't grip the phone, my face started to droop, and next I was on laying on the floor. I was taken to the nearest hospital where I was evaluated through imaging, lab work, and physical tests. I am very fortunate to be able to say that I have all my strength and vision back. I am so excited to be able to participate in this year's Falmouth Road Race as a survivor and help raise stroke awareness. Any donation of any amount would be greatly appreciated to continue to raise awareness! Thank you so much!
