Susan

Susan was moving in to her new apartment when she was overcome by the worst headache of her life. Two family members, who were with her, called an ambulance and the Yonkers resident was rushed to a nearby hospital. Susan had experienced an aneurysm and was in a coma, and then developed a number of complications.

When she arrived at Burke, she had a feeding tube, was completely non-verbal—she couldn’t even point to the window or ceiling, if asked—and couldn’t walk. She spent a month at Burke undergoing intensive therapy, and slowly began to heal. Today, she’s not only walking and talking, but she’s back to driving and babysitting her three grandchildren.

Susan was also determined to live on her own again and, less than a year later, moved into that same apartment—this time with a new lease on life to go with it.
