THE STORY:

Seven years ago I suffered a brain aneurysm and subsequent stroke, spending 3 weeks in the hospital and months recovering. Even though I was fortunate enough to recognize the signs of a stroke,and receive excellent care, it was one of the scariest times of my life. Additionally, as a physical therapist, I have seen how devastating strokes can be. I am currently treating my brother-in-law, who recently suffered a devastating stroke. Brain aneurysms and strokes, as well as other brain injuries are life altering events, for the victim and their loved ones. More research is needed to help prevent strokes and treat the disabilities that result from them. Personally, I feel that something positive did come out of my experience, the realization that life can change in an instant. I know that I am fortunate to still be able to do the things I love; such as raising my four kids and running. Many stroke survivors are not able to return to their prior level of independence. I enjoy participating in charity/fund raising races for fun, and now want to attempt my first marathon while raising money for The National Stroke Association. For someone who grew up on Staten Island, I think the NYC Marathon is the best choice for this endeavor. Please join me as I fund raise for the National Stroke Association so we can prevent our loved ones from joining the group affected by stroke. Any donation, large or small is greatly appreciated, and I will thank of all of you as I run 26.2 miles through the streets of NYC on November 6th !!
