Cody Found to Be a Teen Stroke Victim
When Bonnie talked to Cody on the phone, she couldn’t comprehend what her son was saying, all she could hear were garbling sounds. The father of Cody’s friend then called 911.
After a series of tests, it was found out that Cody suffered a large left-brain stroke, which left many in shock as this typically happens only to older people. At only 17, Cody became a teen stroke victim.
Before Cody was found to be a teen stroke victim, everyone recalled that there were times when they noticed some unusual behavior in Cody. But these symptoms all went away, and no one ever thought it would lead to something as tragic.
Still in shock over what happened, Bonnie shared a piece of advice to all parents, reminding everyone to be very mindful and observant of the behavior their kids are displaying. Talking to 1011 News, she said, “My advice to parents is don’t ignore any signs your kid may have.”
