Finding resources, friendship, and support after stroke

When KP members Arturo Aleman and Hortencia Morales saw an email circulating among friends that described the symptoms of a stroke, the couple had no idea they would need that information just one week later. Morales' stroke struck in the middle of the night. She wasn’t sure what was happening.

“I thought I was talking to [Arturo]. I didn't feel any pain. I kept saying I was fine,” she said. But her husband quickly went through the stroke signs and realized his wife needed to get help. “She was in pretty bad shape. She couldn't talk, couldn’t swallow, had aphasia, couldn't move her tongue in a controlled way, she couldn't hold her arm up,” recalled Aleman.

Raising awareness of Sickle Cell disease

Raising awareness of Sickle Cell disease

Eric Foster, 21, is a college student whose goal is a career in health care. He works out at the gym most days of the week and played youth and high school sports.

You would never guess that he has a serious health condition. And that's okay with him.

"I really don't tell people I have it," said Foster, who serves as a volunteer at the Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento Medical Center. “I don't think most people know about it or that it affects a lot of people.”

When Foster was a baby, he was diagnosed with sickle cell disease. It's a condition that affects 100,000 people in the country.  African American infants are at especially high risk for inheriting the sickle cell trait. He has one of four types known as beta thalassemia.
