Stroke Victim Makes Remarkable Progress
Ashley Philpott knew something was wrong as soon as he woke up in the morning. The 50-year old father of five was dragging his right foot when he walked. Later, his body felt as if it was on fire and he lost the ability to move on his right side. After seven days at the Reba McIntire Center for Rehabilitation, Ashley's progress was astounding. KXII recently visited Ashley to learn more about his story. See what KXII learned about Ashley Philpott and his experience.
