My Story

Laura had a massive stroke on Saturday June 26, 2010. She was taken to Fairview Ridges in Burnsville Minnesota for treatment. Because of the severity of her illness Laura was transferred the next day to the University of Minnesota Fairview hospital in the Intensive Care Unit. Her left carotid artery is completely blocked and that blockage threw two blood clots to her brain. Laura's right arm and leg are paralyzed with face involvement too.
