"It's overwhelming." Moved to tears, 36-year old Michelle Morgan is in awe of the support people from the Siouxland community are showing on her behalf.
A benefit is being held for Michelle, just two and half months after her life was flipped upside down when she suffered from a rare stroke. The once athletic, outgoing mother of two, now left without the use of the right side of her body, sometimes unable to speak, or capable of controlling her emotions. But she says the hardest part of all is when it comes to her two children.
"Knowing I can't take care of them any more. I can't even take care of myself really," said Morgan.
Since the stroke, Morgan has been staying near Ames with her parents, where she is getting rehabilitation treatment. And for her 10-year old daughter Courtney, being away from her mom isn't easy.
"I would go outside and play with her and she use to drop me off at school," said Courtney.
But things are getting better, and slowly, but surely Morgan is recovering. She says its her kids that keep her going, and oddly enough, her own laugh does too. Ever since the stroke it hasn't sounded the same.
"So I laugh at myself. And it keeps me going. And everybody else laughs with me too," said Morgan.
And while doctors says Morgan may never make a full recovery, she said she's not afraid to prove them wrong.
