Jen was lucky to fully recover.

Jen got treatment before it was too late. 

First Jen collapsed. Then she couldn’t speak. As she was rushed to the hospital, a stroke continued to shut down her brain and body. Jen received a clot-busting drug just in time to prevent permanent damage. Jen made a full recovery. Others will not.

This is innovative research that will treat strokes faster.

Researchers are working on a new drug innovation that can “pause” the brain during a stroke and dramatically reduce damage. Dr. Michael Tymianski hopes to develop an injection (like an EpiPen®) that can be given long before an ambulance arrives – buying even more time to keep brain cells alive.
