Lopez Island Fudge Lady recounts stroke survival
MarJoe Davidson was transported by Airlift Northwest and underwent a new procedure at Harborview Medical Center. Her story appears in The Islands' Weekly.
MarJoe Davidson woke up one night last winter at her island home and found she was unable to get out of bed. When her spouse saw that her mouth slightly drooped and her left side was not moving, she called the Lopez Island Fire Department.
The medics summoned Airlift Northwest to transport Davidson over the waters of Puget Sound to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, and to provide emergency care for her en route. At Harborview's Endovascular Ischemic Stroke Therapy unit, Davidson underwent a new procedure to pull a clot from a brain artery.
Her story of stoke survival, as well as her attendance at her first Mariners baseball game through Strike Out Stroke, was chronicled June 7 in her hometown news, The Islands' Weekly.
Davidson is back working at her shop in Lopez Villlage, Just Heavenly Fudge Factory.
