Overview

At a critical juncture during brain surgery, Alex Dixon, age 12, had a stroke . . . Alex was a normal, bright, and healthy little girl, when the sudden onset of a mysterious illness began to take over her life. Months of physical therapy and medication failed to provide relief from acute pain and muscle spasms. Doctors across the country were at a loss for answers. A last-ditch attempt at treatment-brain surgery-ended up stopping the spasms but with unexpected, dire consequences. A Stroke of Luck is the remarkable true story of a close-knit family that meets challenge after challenge with resilience, hope, and love.
