In 2009, Steven Hill, then 33, experienced both an ischemic (blood clot) stroke and a hemorrhagic (ruptured blood vessel) stroke while on vacation in Jamaica. He was flown to Florida for life-saving surgery to stop the bleeding and remove the clot. The surgeon performed a craniectomy, the removal of a piece of the skull to allow for brain swelling. The bone flap could not be replaced for almost six months. Facing a lengthy recovery, healthcare professionals recommended the Hill family contact Angel MedFlight to provide Steven with an air medical transport for his continued care in New England. This is his inspiring journey of recovery from his initial flight in 2009 to Massachusetts through his efforts to increase stroke awareness in 2012 to his current physical rehabilitation accomplishments.
