“It happened so fast, without warning.”

When Alicia Didia started exhibiting signs of stroke, her sons recognized the symptoms and acted promptly. Within minutes, an ambulance arrived to take her to Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center.

“I was suffering from an ischemic stroke, which occurs when an artery to the brain is blocked. I was given an injection of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), a clot-busting drug and blood thinner, and five minutes later, I was talking to him like nothing had happened,” says Didia.

“I want to thankthe stroke team at Palm Beach Gardens for their quick actions in diagnosing, treating and saving my life before it was too late.”
