WEST TEXAS - Even though stroke fell from the fourth leading cause of death in the country to the third, it's still the leading cause of disability, leaving many survivors to figure out how to get back to living. They say it has a lot to do with their support systems.
Gilbert Rodriguez used to train race horses, but as of late 2010, he's wheelchair-bound.
"Usually people that have had a stroke have had some kind of a deficit. They either can't move one side of their body, they can't talk, they can't say things correctly," MCH Stroke Coordinator, Karry Morris, said.
