Meet Abby, Molly, Madeline & Blake

For Abby Anderson, Molly Ogden, Madeline Mudd, and Blake Ephraim, high school hasn't been easy. Beyond the typical struggles of being a teenager, each of these girls are also stroke survivors. At times it has been a tough road filled with sadness and loneliness, as it can be very challenging going back to school and recovering from a stroke. 

However, the four girls have built relationships with each other, overcome obstacles and have made it their mission to educate others and bring awareness to the signs and symptoms of stroke. 

In May, the girls will be graduating from their respected high schools on time.
