II is a three time stroke survivor.
He didn’t expect to become a stroke survivor at the the tender age of thirty-seven, but stroke survival is now my life and more importantly my purpose.
On December 23, 2014, Lee suffered from my first stroke. He woke up incoherent and unable to speak. He had no idea what was happening. Lee willed himself to his feet and called out to his wife to no avail. It was only until he was halfway down the stairs that his wife saw me.
Lee will never forget the fear and horror that he saw in her eyes. His wife quickly called 911 and Lee was transported to the hospital. He experienced two more strokes by Christmas morning and by the New Years my journey began.
His progress has been slow, painful, confusing, filled with self-doubt and denial at times.
These obstacles have placed him in a position to help other “stroke warriors” who are trying to cope with life after a stroke(s). Today, Lee counters stroke with LIFE, LOVE and HOPE! He discovered the key to rehabilitation is to live life pass its limitations, love people pass their limitations, and have faith pass your limitations. This is how he counters stroke.
