PATIENT CONNECTION

Jim’s Story

At 2:30 in the morning, Jim suffered from a massive stroke. He woke up knowing something wasn't right and even told his wife, "I think I'm having a stroke." His care team determined that his odds of survival were low—even lower if he were taken into surgery. Science, hope and Jim’s determination lifted him through the months of recovery that followed.
