Having a Stroke at 35 is NOT Supposed to Happen!
At least that is what I thought. My wife suffered a stroke at 35 shortly after the birth of our second daughter. She collapsed at the kitchen table just as I was about to leave for work one day and, depsite my family having a long history of heart disease, I was completely caught off gaurd. A stroke can happen at any age and anytime. The important thing is to identify the signs of a stroke quickly.
We were lucky. My wife's stroke was caught early and she not only recovered, but ran the 2018 Boston Marathon for Tedy's Team.
Now it's my turn. Our family has been involved with the team since 2017. Our mission is to not only to bring awareness to stroke prevention, but also to help others win their comeback story after a stroke. Please help!

About Tedy's Team
The mission of Tedy's Team is to raise awareness for stroke and heart disease while supporting survivors on their journey, giving them a means for a comeback!
Tedy's Team was originally founded in 2005, when Tedy Bruschi, former linebacker for the New England Patriots suffered a stroke shortly after winning his 3rd Super Bowl and just days after returning from his first Pro Bowl.
We are honored to be part of the Offical Charity Program of the Boston Marathon. The Boston Athletic Association has allowed us to utilize their platform to elevate the awareness of the warning signs of stroke, which are best remembered by using the acronym BE FAST, which stands for:
- Balance Difficulties
- Eyesight Changes
- Face Drooping
- Arm Weakness
- Speech Difficulties - and if you notice any of those warning signs, it's...
- TIME TO CALL 9-1-1.
