SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — A Sioux Falls mother says she didn’t fit the profile of someone who would have to be concerned about suffering a stroke.
But that’s what happened in April.
A blood clot shut down part of Alana Willis’ brain — she was in grave danger of losing her life.
“My kids, my two teenage girls were in the kitchen and I went to tell them I’m having a stroke. I need help, and I couldn’t talk. And that was the first time I realized I couldn’t talk,” said Willis.
Coming up on tonight’s EYE on KELOLAND, Alana and her family share their story and why it was thanks to quick actions that she’s alive today.
