Faces of Stroke - Logo 100px  transparent

Pam Q.



I swore I had a pinched nerve, because my back hurt so much and I wasn't able to lift my left foot. During the night, I fell and couldn't get up and my daughter told me I was slurring my words, and it was time to go to the ER. I now walk with a little limp, drive, have some trouble holding things, etc. with my left side, and have a small problem with my memory and speech.  I consider myself a miracle every time I step into the pulpit to preach. I would feel honored to share my story with anyone!
