Hi, I am Cynthia Stevens from up in New Jersey, of Cherry Hill, N.J. On May 3, never forget, I had a major stroke, after a year of going back and forth to doctor’s hospital to no avail.
I was never diagnosed with the heart disease or stroke. I knew in my heart, something majorly wrong with me. Confused by the pregnancy and confused by the doctor’s comment to me, I cannot believe what happened on May 3.
Here I was, watching my children, sending them off to school and all of a sudden, I am on the back bathroom, I fall down. Knowing that that’s normal to me, my 10-year-old daughter Chelsea, she decided to come to my aid and ask me, “Do you want me to call ‘911’?”
She thought I would have my baby, and I said, “No, I am fine”, and then I called to my living room because I was unable to use my right and left, my right side I was unable to walk so I called and being very vague, pregnant, I was 180 lbs. probably at six months pregnant.
