Hi! I’m Mike. I’m in my 50’s, I’m very happily married for over 30 years. I have two children – my daughter is a nurse, and my son is studying to be a mechanical engineer. In March, 2003, I had a severe brain stem stroke. According to the doctors, I had an 85%-90% chance of dying. God performed a miracle and saved my life. The stroke did, however, leave some striking and lasting effects. Among other things, I relearned how to walk, talk, and swallow. I now live my life in a wheelchair. But I don’t let that slow me down. I have a wonderful life surrounded by family and a lot of friends. We live in Daphne, AL, and we love it!
