On March 17, 2011, Michael Dawkins woke up for work with a headache that he had for the past few days. He started to get ready and on his way into the kitchen collapsed. He was rushed to the hospital where he was in intensive care for 11 days, after 3 more days, he was released.
Michael is one of the three percent that make a full recovery after an aneurysm of the type he experienced. Feeling truly lucky to be alive, Michael is now striving not to waste what he feels is his second chance at life.
