“On January 19th I had a stroke. I was totally paralyzed on my left side. I was in the hospital for about three months. And then I was in rehab for thirty five days and when I came home I had to go to physical therapy. I just finished in August.

We’d walk a mile everyday. If it wasn’t for her and my strong belief, I think I would have given up a long time ago.”
-Jenni Parker, Northern Cheyenne
