Surviving a stroke and becoming Bob again

October 26, 2011

A stroke can happen to anyone, at anytime.

It happened to Bob just a few weeks after he had celebrated the wedding of his son, Joe.

A blood vessel burst in Bob’s brain, and he was rushed immediately to Barnes-Jewish Hospital.

The immediate outlook was not good. His team of physicians and care givers, which included neurosurgery, neurology and rehabilitation, got this long-time Cardinal’s fan back on the road to recovery after his stroke, and to becoming Bob again.

Due to the exceptional care Bob received, his son Joe established the annual Bob Zellerman Golf Classic to raise money for The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital’s Barnes-Jewish Extended Care Fund.

To learn more about Bob’s care throughout his experience, read the story in this issue of Giving magazine from the Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital here.
