Surviving Stroke

This half-hour television special will take viewers through the stroke experience, starting with a 911 call and tracking what happens to the patient and to their brain in the hospital, in the operating room, and in the aftermath of rehabilitation. We build the show around the story of 53-year-old Bill Forester of Bay Village, who suffered a massive stroke two years ago that left him speechless and paralyzed on his right side. His tale is that of tragedy and triumph as we witness the initial physical and emotional impact stroke had on him and his family, as well as the victory they now feel as he continues to recover. In chronicling his experience we explain what happens to the brain and the rest of the body during stroke; how a stroke emergency is treated; how rehabilitation works highlighting exciting new developments in brain remodeling; and what people need to know to in terms of prevention.
