Tell Us Your Story:

After a night with friends at the movie The Revenant, and feeling wonderful
Arrived home and began to feel like there was a vice tightening around my neck.

Living a mile from Emory University and Emory emergency room and realizing I was experiencing a very very strange sensation I jumped in my car
and drove myself to Emory emergency room having sent my boyfriend home

Miraculously I was diagnosed and in emergency surgery within 45 minutes with less than 50/50 chance of survival. Thanks to Dr. Steven Macheers,and team, Who happened to be on site for a conference that night he saved my life, and I feel wonderful today or year and a half later !!!!!
