I was in school during my second semester of my junior year in college.
My name is Amanda and at 46 years old I began a journey that has created a path that I would have never expected. I am married and have three children and our first grandson due in May.
To Whom it May Concern
I am a 45 year old woman who had a severe headache the week before my stroke.
I had not been sleeping for 3 days. I was having severe stomach pains. I was 38 weeks pregnant with undiagnosed severe preeclampsia.
I am a 6 time stroke survivor with 2 minor strokes. My first stroke happened when I took my wife away to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary.
I have owned and operated my own personal training studios for 32 years, as well as setting up and developing other personal fitness training businesses.
I was three years old when I had my stroke and it's one of the most vivid memories I have as being a child. I was at the daycare at my mother's college.
