Stroke survivor and hero

A story about the admirable efforts of a Tennessee woman who serves her fellow stroke survivors:

Her most important ministry is giving to people who are going through what she once suffered. She spends hours with the patients every week.

"I try to give them encouragement," Daugherty said. "It's a blow to them. If one day your arms and legs aren't working anymore it's a big shock. They wonder if they can get better ... I tell the patients to keep working at it and they may be surprised."
