I am ... A Caregiver or Family Member

Almost three years ago i lost mother to a massive stroke which led to bleeding in her brain,which in turn left her with brain damage.Her stroke was sudden and drastic.She was on life support for seven days and we was left with the decision of taking her off life support because her brain lost all of its function the ability to gag was the last to go.She died on her on in her sleep. Her death left a hole in my heart but it also gave me the strength to change my health lifestyle and turn into an advocate to educate my family and friends on stroke prevention so we wouldnt have to deal with another loss to stroke
