I am a 45 year-old Firefighter for the City of Los Angeles. I was at work, when all of a sudden I collapsed. My whole right side was not working! Luckily, my co-workers realized the symptoms and transported me to the appropriate hospital. It has been a long road to recovery, but I am finally back to full duty.
