Jennifer Saake recently celebrated life after suffering six strokes at only 39-years-old. She had a long road to recovery. After nearly two months in the ICU at Renown Regional Medical Center and Renown Institute for Neurosciences, Jennifer worked on regaining her mobility at Renown Rehabilitation Hospital. Three years later, Jennifer’s blog, “Stoke of Grace,” has become a form of therapy and an online support group for other stroke survivors.
Not expected to live or recover, Jennifer is now walking with a cane, has recovered much of her eye-sight, some hearing and partial use of her hands. She attributes much of her recovery to the great care she received at the Renown Rehabilitation Hospital, along with blogging, music and water therapy, and her supportive family and friends.
