Will Folk and Holly Harrison’s lives were full and their future was shiny. The two were busily building their careers, setting up a new apartment and planning their wedding.
Those plans did not include stroke.
But it happened. On Valentine’s Day 2013, Harrison collapsed on the bathroom floor at work from a hemorrhagic stroke.
She fought for her life and wedding plans seemed trivial. In and out of a medically induced coma for 17 days, doctors gave her a 20 percent chance to survive.
A little more than a year later, Harrison has made tremendous progress in her recovery. Although their wedding fund was depleted to pay medical bills, they did get married recently onboard the American Heart Association and Princess Cruises “Cruise for a Cause.”
