WINONA, Minn. (KTTC) – People in Winona came together Sunday afternoon to support a young stroke survivor.
A benefit at the American Legion Post 9 raised funds for 24-year-old Kelsey Ewing, a supply chain buyer at Fastenal and a lifelong Winona resident.
Ewing suffered a stroke last December.
She thinks it could have something to do with a chiropractic adjustment she had just received.
After the stroke, she had to relearn how to do simple tasks like walking, eating, and writing.
The benefit will help pay for medical bills and ongoing physical therapy.
“It means more than the world, obviously,” Ewing said. “It means a lot to me because of all the hard work that I put into it, and I have all these great people behind me and I don’t think I would be here or be at the level of recovery that I am without them.”
You can also help by donating to the Kelsey Ewing Benefit Account at any Bremer Bank location.
