Stroke Stories: A. Jaye Johnson - "I Refused to Give Up"
May 24, 2013 started as a regular Friday morning. I was getting ready for another staff training at the Boys and Girls Club. I had a doctor’s appointment that morning not knowing my life was about to change. At the beginning of my check up, the nurse was checking what I thought was my temperature but turned out to be the oxygen level to my brain, which was at 69%. I was told I needed to go the emergency room ASAP.
