Paralyzed after his stroke, dad vows to walk at daughter’s wedding

Jim Cohen, acclaimed chef and restaurateur, woke up one morning completely paralyzed after suffering a stroke in his sleep.

His mind was alert and aware, but he couldn’t move his body or call for help. It’s called being “locked-in.” The only way he could convey that he was conscious was by blinking his eyes. One blink for “yes,” two blinks for “no.”

With such a small percentage of these patients ever regaining any motor function at all, Jim’s outlook was extremely grim.

But when the tiniest ray of hope comes into Jim’s life in the form of a question, Jim blinks once and sets out to do the impossible.
