Title : Inside the Mind of a 32 year old Stroke Survivor Living with Moya Moya Disease


At the age of 32, and 6 months postpartum from having her first child, Michelle walked into the ER with impaired motor skills on the left side of her body, a horrible headache and slurred speech. She was diagnosed with a migraine and discharged. Two days later she had a massive Ischemic Stroke. The cause of her stroke went undetected for more than 6 months, until she was finally diagnosed with Moya Moya disease and underwent brain surgery to restore blood and oxygen to the right side of her body. Michelle now shares her story with medical professionals hoping she can help to save another person from the suffering she went through.

What will audience learn from your presentation?

  • They will learn the major symptoms of a TIA and how it differs from a migraine, the next time someone presents with a TIA, they will know what to do and how to help before the patient has a full stroke. They can save a life with this information.
  • They will hear first-hand, what it is like to be the patient having a stroke and what it is like to have a brain injury so they can provide better care for their patients moving forward.
