The Journey Begins...
Mark McEwen was at the top of his game and enjoying life when he suffered a stroke. After 15 years on The Early Show, he had moved to Orlando to anchor the local news and spend more time with his family. While traveling, he experienced symptoms that led him to the hospital, where he was misdiagnosed and sent home. Two days later he collapsed, and his slurred speech and heavy sweating were discounted. Misinformation not only delayed his treatment, but it also nearly cost him his life.
In 2008, America's beloved morning-show weatherman recalls his harrowing journey of rehabilitation from a massive stroke, in the publicly acclaimed book, After the Stroke.
Since the release of his book, Mark continues to be an advocate for stroke survivors, their families. He tirelessly works to educate the public on stroke symptoms, and recovery. Mark is also back on television. In addition to numerous interviews, he has begun a new series, "Positive Mark", highlighting heroes that have made a positive difference in others' lives.
Mark McEwen has also joined the blogging community with his new online series, "My Name is Mark McEwen. This Is The Ongoing Story of My Life."
