Share Your Story: Shauna Brick

What couldn’t a girl say about her father?  He watched you grow from daddy’s little girl to an independent woman, teaching you valuable life lessons and sharing in all your special moments along the way.  In 1998, I almost lost my father to a life threatening stroke.  Embarrassingly, when he told me what he thought was happening I didn’t recognize or have the education to know the signs and told him to go back to bed.  Thankfully, my mom did know and hours later he was in the emergency room with Dr.’s monitoring his progressive stroke.  My father was able to walk me down the aisle last summer BECAUSE of their quick reaction, knowledge and my mom’s education.  Who can enjoy life’s moments because of yours?
