Mila Returns to Gardening and Exercise
Following Surprise Stroke
At 74 years old, Mila jogged, danced, gardened and consumed a healthy diet. One day, seemingly out of nowhere, Mila began experiencing stroke-like symptoms. At Swedish Hospital, a Primary Stroke Center, she was immediately admitted and treated. The stroke left her right side extremely weak, making it difficult to do everyday tasks like walk and eat. A team of therapists worked with Mila to help her regain strength and balance and return to independence. Through their help, Mila has returned home to the things she loves.
