I am … a Survivor.
My name is Rodney and I am a survivor. I had a ‘ Lacunar Pontine Infarct ‘. Better known as a Pons Stroke. I was a 53 year old in great shape. They determined it to be heredity as I had none of the issues that cause stroke. My heritage is African American, Native American, & Spanish. Tough combination. The stroke did significant damage physically but I have made an 85% recovery. Driving, walking with an AFO, and caring for myself. My wife & kids have been very helpful by letting me battle. Long journey ahead but God is there. Currently age 55 and recovering.
