At 23 years old, I was an award-wining opera and contemporary singer with a job as a professional performer. I was living my dream until, after performing in a show, I had a massive stroke that left me completely paralyzed on the left side of my body and I was placed in a medically-induced coma. But, unlike with most neurological injuries, my memory was never effected. While I was trapped in my own mind, I lived a horrible, confusing reality as my subconscious tried to make sense of what was happening to me and around me in the real world. When I finally awoke, I had to relearn how to function from the ground up and I had to restructure the goals I had set for my future. But I wasn’t alone. Through God’s grace and through support from family and friends, I persevered. This is my completely true and transparent account of how it all happened. This is my success story. I hope reading it brings you peace and understanding in a world that so desperately needs more of both.
