Coach Lagman's Road to Recovery

Coach Lagman, better known to many as Joey, recently relocated to Las Vegas from Anaheim, CA. He accepted a position at St. Gabriel Catholic School, teaching PE and coaching. Though he knew the move would be sudden and a bit rushed, he believed the sacrifice of leaving most of his family, friends & the only life he knew would be well worth it, not only for himself, but for his wife and young son.

After just one week of school, Coach Lagman already felt comfortable and confident in his decision. He found his new home.

On August 17, 2017, Coach Lagman, though physically active and strong, was rushed to the ER after suffering from a stroke. He lost mobility on the left side of his face, arm and leg and had to be treated immediately. The staff at Sunrise Hospital was so quick and willing to help. They said the chance of a 34 year old man suffering from a stroke is .00001% - which means he was more likely to win the lottery then have this happen! They're doing a lot of tests, there is a long road to recovery and we are asking for lots of prayers.

Coach Lagman was in the ICU for two days, but his strong will, positive outlook and the support and love from his friends and family have helped his recovery. Joey is slowly learning to walk again, regaining strength in his arm and face so that he can get back to his students and St Gabriel family as soon as he can. This long road to recovery will also encounter medical bills and we are asking for help in any way you can. If you are unable to help monetarily, we ask for prayers, shares, smiles and positive thoughts.

On behalf of Coach Lagman and the entire Lagman family, we would like to thank you for all the support, comments, prayers and love that he has received thus far. You have truly made a difference in Joey's life and he is thankful for each and every one of you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! #lagmanroad2recovery
