The gentleman standing between Ryan and me in the picture above is lucky to be alive and well after suffering a stroke on March 20, 2017.  Bob’s frightening but amazing story tells how he suddenly lost the use of his right side and ability to speak, but thanks to the quick actions of his wife and co-workers, he received the necessary treatment to recover from his stroke. Now he is on a mission to share his story and spread the word and help other victims and caregivers quickly recognize the symptoms and get help.
