Cudahy community supporting high school senior recovering from double stroke
CUDAHY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- People in Cudahy are helping a high school senior recovering from a double stroke.
Hannah Drummond, 18, was in gym class two weeks ago when it happened.
"It was just all of a sudden, the left side of my body went completely numb,” she said. "I was scared. I knew what it was when it was happening."
On her way to an expected full recovery, Cudahy businesses are holding fundraisers to help with medical bills, and T-shirts with Hannah’s name on them are being sold.
Tony Wittliff, Hannah’s stepfather, wants people to know that just because a stroke for someone Hannah’s age is improbable, it’s not impossible.
"You're never too young to have a stroke,” Drummond said. “It can happen. It happened to me."
Pizza Pete’s is donating half of its sales Monday and Tuesday to Hannah’s family.
"Kid's stronger than I'll ever be,” Wittliff said. “Definitely proud of her."
A softball player, Hannah hopes to be back on the field after spring break. In the fall, she plans to play on the Cardinal Stritch University team.
