THE STORY:

I am not the stereotypical person that you would think would be a candidate for a stroke. As someone who loves fitness, worked out, in good shape, had no history of high blood pressure or high cholesterol everyone was surprised the day 2 years ago when I suffered a stroke! After some genetic testing I found that I have the Prothrombin Gene Mutation. Thankfully my husband was with me at the time that I was having symptoms and since he has worked his entire life in the medical field he knew there was a good chance I was having a stroke. He got me to the ER within minutes announcing that I was a possible stroke victim. They in turn whisked me directly into a trauma room, had a CT done, consulted via teleconference with a neurologist specialist and within 40 minutes of the first symptom they administered a clot dissolving drug. Proper diagnosis and time is of the essence in the successful recovery of stroke patients and I was one of the lucky ones! Who would think that just 2 years later I would be running in my first ever half marathon hoping to raise awareness (as well as funds) for a cure of this disease. Do you know F.A.S.T.? Face, Arm drooping, Speech difficulties and Time! Please donate to help spread the word and education of F.A.S.T. while I try to run fast in this half marathon. Thank you!
