Update: Stroke of Grace has become In Darkness Sing and has moved to JenniferSaake.com.

Thirty-nine-year-old Jennifer Saake (founder, Hannah's Prayer Ministries), experienced 6 strokes via vertebral dissection at a chiropractic office, including brain stem and cerebellum bleeds, in Oct. 2011. Jenni remained hospitalized for nearly 2 months and was not expected to live (near death experience) nor recover, but if she even survived, she was slated to live out her days in a nursing home or, best case, to maybe come home but wheelchair-bound and needing 24-hour care. At 5 years, 7 months God showed how He was writing her story from the beginning.

Jenni is currently writing more books and stays active on both Facebook and Pinterest. Stroke of Grace became In Darkness Sing in early 2018 and has moved, along with all five of Jennifer's active blogs, to one location at JenniferSaake.com.

Since Jenni's chiropractor carried no insurance and moved out of the country soon after the accident (thus avoiding any legal or financial consequences), if you would like to help contribute to the Saake (pronounced like the two small words, say and key) family's massive financial needs (medical expenses alone are estimated to cost between $1- and $1.5- Million in Jenni's lifetime), please visit Jennifer Saake's Stroke Survivor GoFundMe Page. (This support information has been added in direct response to several reader requests.) The Saakes sincerely thank you for your prayers and if God prompts and equips you to send any monetary assistance as well, this is a significant added blessing.

Votes and Signatures Needed, Please!

I have been hesitant ask you for action on this video I shared a few days ago, only because I have already been pleading for signatures on a chiropractic accountability petition at https://www.change.org/p/u-s-house-of-representatives-bill-proposal-mandatory-reporting-of-chiropractic-stroke-vad-cad and Do NOT want to distract from that effort. 

If you have already signed there, I would be so pleased if you would also go to my chiropractic stroke story at http://patients.aan.com/neurofilmfestival/index.cfm?event=vote%3Avideo.view&film=727 (rather than YouTube) and very quickly register to "vote" (register your email address, choose a password, then click on the green "vote" button under my video or next to the title "40 Months of Stroke Recovery") for my video, entered at the Neuro Film Festival

You may see an extensive list of video and, sadly, you may only vote once. I would be honored if you please look for "40 Months of Stroke Recovery" and select mine! Fan voting is only open through March 10 and at this writing I have 7 votes (thanks Mom and a few faithful friends!) v/s some people close to 200. I realize my story isn't slick and professionally illustrated, but I am pretty thrilled with what I managed to record given that I "should" be dead today!

Fan voting is open for just a few more days. They will select one winner based on best "film" while fan get a say in best "story". I would so appreciate your time, help and support in this 3-minute effort out of your day! Thank you!!! http://patients.aan.com/neurofilmfestival/index.cfm?event=vote%3Avideo.view&film=727
