Ken Garland was in the midst of rehabbing his basement when he suffered a stroke on Sept. 8, 2015. After eating a slice of pizza, he stood up to get back to work when he felt dizzy and a loss of balance. He sat back down, and after a few moments, stumbled upstairs to rest. He was slouched down on the sofa when his wife returned from walking the dog. Ken was perspiring profusely.  His wife called 911 and within minutes the Manhattan paramedics were transporting Ken to the Silver Cross Emergency Department (ED) where a Code Stroke Team was awaiting his arrival.  By this time, Ken felt tingling in his arms and legs. 

Over 485 friends of Silver Cross Hospital attended the 88th Annual Childerguild Ball on November 19 at the Odyssey Country Club and enjoyed wonderful food and dancing.
