Credits the Summa Health stroke team for him being here today

Ryan: It was just like any other day, and I started getting real dizzy, and I ended up falling to the floor, and I couldn't speak or use any part of my right arm. I was having a stroke. So, The New Franklin EMTs rushed me to Summa Hospital. They called ahead and activated the stroke team, so they were ready for me as soon as I arrived.

Dr. Venizelos and his team performed a thrombectomy to remove the clots that were causing the stroke. I mean I really wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for Dr. V. and his team, and the procedure that they did on me.

I have a very strong faith, and I believe that God had put all the right people at the right time and the right place, to get me through this. I'm enjoying life every day, I'm back to playing my guitar, spending time with my family, my fiancé, and just enjoying life, 'cause I'm not a quitter.
