Stroke Survivor

Posted on June 22, 2015

In July 2014, Reverend Jimmie Bunch began to have chest pain and self medicated with aspirin. Rev. Bunch described these instances as ‘blank spells’. “I would not pass out, but everything would go blank for a moment”, says Bunch. After going to a regular scheduled visit at the V.A. Clinic, he received a phone call telling him to immediately go the the emergency room. These blank spells he had been experiencing were really mini strokes. Rev. Bunch went straight to the emergency room. The ER physician informed him that waiting any longer could have caused a major stroke. Rev. Bunch was amazed by the immediate care he received and how helpful the group of doctors were to his case. For more information, please visit
