James Anderson's story: How a minimally invasive procedure reversed his stroke
James Anderson will celebrate his 65th birthday participating in the Cooper River Bridge 10K Run. This is a great goal for anyone but it's even more impressive considering James suffered a stroke this past July. Thanks to his wife's knowledge of stroke symptoms and her quick action in calling 9-1-1, James was evaluated at their local hospital in Florence, SC and quickly transferred to MUSC for a minimally invasive procedure that saved his life.
