National Stroke Association 2010 Logo - 100 transparent

On February 23, 2012 I woke up and started my day like every other day getting ready for work until I fell to the ground and lost complete functionality of my left side. I had suffered a stroke at the age of 27. Luckily, I was able to reach my cell phone and call 911 to get help fast. The days after my stroke I remember being scared wondering if I be able to regain completely functionality of my left side. After working with PT and OT I have not only regained most of my functionality, but I'm running again.
In addition to running this marathon I have another exciting milestone in my life coming up; I'm getting married! I am thankful each day that I got help, and got help FAST; I credit my doctors with recognizing my signs and saving my life. Thanks to them I will be walking down the aisle the way I have always envisioned!
I turned to running years ago as a way to challenge myself and keep in shape. I ran my first marathon last year and look forward to running NYC marathon this year as part of the New York City Marathon Stroke Challenge team. I chose to run with the stroke team to increase stroke awareness and educate people that strokes can happen to anyone at any age.

National Stroke Association’s mission is to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke by developing compelling education and programs focused on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and support for all impacted by stroke. Thank you for joining us to try and stop this devastating disease.
