Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail for Stroke awareness

One day in 2003, I went to sleep with full vision. The next morning I woke up partially blind.

After being educated, I looked back and can remember the moment the stroke was happening. With the knowledge gained after the incident, I now know how to spot a stroke and react to it. I want everyone to know how to spot and react to the symptoms of a stroke.

While I hike the 2650 mile Pacific Crest Trail, please take a few minutes to learn how to spot a stroke with F-A-S-T:

Face drooping

Arm weakness

Speech difficulties

Time to call emergency services (9-1-1)

Visit strokeassociation.org to learn more.

A portion of this campaign will be donated to the America Heart Association to help fight stroke, one of the nations top killers.

Jared, You impressed the living daylights out of me from the very first time I saw you when you were at Apple. I had absolutely no idea you had had a stroke. Who has strokes that young!? And I'm even more impressed with you now doing what you're doing. Please do us all a huge favor. Be careful. Take care of yourself. You're a precious piece of humanity, a piece of stardust with a beautiful heart. God bless you and watch over you.

I remember the day store leadership pulled a sticky note off the wall with your name and phone number because you'd turned eighteen and could work at our store. You've always been an inspiration, and I was clueless about your backstory. Be safe and continue being exceptional.
