Jackie Blake

Jackie Blake, a wife and mom to one young daughter at the time, was only 29 when she had a stroke that almost left her without the ability to speak, write, walk or do anything a normal 29 year old woman should be able to do. Luckily, with the help of time, therapy, medical professionals and her family who was always there for her, Jackie has found a “new normal” and is now 36 years old with two beautiful daughters.

Jackie and her husband, Ross, are determined to raise awareness that strokes can happen to anyone, at any age, and to help others recognize the risk factors and warning signs. 

They are thankful to Jackie’s amazing medical team who brought her back, and for the incredible research and technology that are impacting the lives of stroke patients everywhere.
