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. Here is her resume.

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.

AHA /ASA Chiropractic Stoke Statement



I had six strokes within one month, via neck manipulation, the first two right there on the chiropractic table. This was almost five years ago (will be 5 years in late October) so the following warning comes nearly 3 years too late to do me any good, but you better believe I want to spread the word! I was only 39 years old at the time. As evidenced by the ongoing material for this blog, my life is forever, radically changed!


AUGUST IS THE 2nd ANNIVERSARY OF THIS SCIENTIFIC STATEMENT
Neck manipulation may be associated with stroke
American Heart Association/American Stroke Association Scientific Statement

Statement Highlights
•Manipulating the neck has been associated with cervical dissection, a type of arterial tear that can lead to stroke.
•Although a direct cause-and-effect link has not been established between neck manipulation and the risk of stroke, healthcare providers should inform patients of the association before they undergo neck manipulation.
