A stroke victim walking the 6.2 mile Peachtree

Today, I met a woman recovering from a stroke who’s determined to walk this year’s Peachtree Road Race. She was in a coma for 3 months and her left side is partially paralyzed. Still she’s determined to be there on July 4th. She’ll be among those walking with a cane. Look for her. The forty year old’s name is April. You’ll see her a few days before the race on WSB-Television, channel 2 in Atlanta, Georgia. It’s part of my series on a preview of the Peachtree.

    April is my 1st cousin. If you don’t believe in miracles then take a look at her, because she is truly a walking miracle. There isn’t anything that she can’t do if she sets her mind to it. Walking the Peachtree Road Race had been a major goal that she set for herself about 5 years ago. She has trained and trained hard to accomplish her goal. Be sure to watch her interview anywhere from July 1st to July 3rd. I promise you, you will be touched by her story.

    April is my niece, I remember the news about her stroke and the love her husband and our family has for the lady. We always wonder “Why?”, then April gave me a bracelet that said “Why Not Me” . This lady makes me feel love every time I see her. Don and WSB-TV, Thanks for doing this story on April….Aaron
