Stroke victim finds "happy place" at BC YMCA

By Alex Galbraith
Before suffering a stroke at the age of 40 that left him without the use of much of his left side, Tremell Hill went to the Belle Chasse YMCA five days a week. Two years after that stroke, not much has changed.Hill, under the  watchful eye of wellness coach Jordan Nielsen, has supplemented his weekly therapy sessions at Touro Hospital in New Orleans with up to five days at the Y’s gym, working on strengthening his muscles and steadily recovering. “The progress he’s made has been phenomenal since he came back,” said Nielsen. “Each time he comes you can see him doing a little bit more and it’s absolutely mind-blowing.”
