On the ladder to recovery after a brain aneurysm

As a firefighter, Steve saves lives every day—now it was our turn to save his.

Firefighter Steve has been putting out fires for 36 years. One morning at home, he felt a sudden, extremely severe headache and lost consciousness—tell-tale signs of a brain aneurysm. Our team at North Shore University Hospital provided the immediate care Steve needed, and now he’s grateful to be alive.
