Faces of Stroke - Logo 100px  transparent

Joe C.


I am a former well accomplished musician, executive director of a chamber of commerce, and a licensed and ordained Minister of the Gospel. I suffered an intra cerebral hemorrhagic stroke. A blood vessel burst at the stem of my nervous system, flooding my left side of my brain with blood, killing most of the brain cells that control my speech, motor skills, and range of motion. It put me in a coma in a hospital for three months, and left me paralyzed on the entire right side. But I survived! I'm currently recovering step by step!

I'm in it to win it!
