I had the unique chance to personalize what I do for my client, Mayo Clinic, and help raise awareness about stroke. My friends at Mayo Clinic encouraged me to share my experiences as a caregiver (years ago) to my grandmother after she suffered a stroke.

My grandmother was a very influential person in my life, so I was happy to reminisce about her resilience and her determination. Sometimes, the personal experience leads the way when it comes to working from the heart.

And it’s always impressive to learn about things the docs are able to do now. My grandmother, who was born in 1903 in rural Puerto Rico, never heard of endovascular procedures, but she would have benefitted from such medical advances.
