WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Wanted to send you a quick email to personally thank you for your advocacy work related to stroke awareness. We both have had emotional moments during these past few hours however one of the things she said if it was not for your advocacy work with stroke awareness she didn’t know where she would be today."
"Hearing you tell your story literally made me be like I need to go to ER sooner and not brush it off longer. So thank you for sharing...seriously."
"Because of you pushing me to make myself a priority, I am now off of high blood pressure medication, and anxiety medication. I am working out 3 times a week, and meditating everyday. The small changes that you encouraged and guided me through have changed my life. I've never been this confident or felt this good before. I hope you know that you are changing and saving lives."
