Spotting Signs of Stroke to Save Husband

It was an early December morning in 2017, and Brett Kinnard was most of the way to Prineville for work when he realized something didn’t feel right.

“It was bad,” the 32-year-old Bend man said late last month. “I drive my truck … and oh man … ow … ouch … big time … big time. And pain, and pain. Oh my gosh.”

And that’s where Brett’s streak of good luck started. Despite an intense headache and blurry vision, he was able to turn around and drive all the way back home. There, his wife Heather was home when she typically wouldn’t have been. She had dropped their children at daycare and stopped back by to grab something on the way to another appointment.
