THIS FRIDAY: Young Stroke Survivor to Throw First Pitch at Stroke Awareness Night

Instead of stealing bases, a 13 year old stroke survivor will be stealing hearts when he throws out the first pitch with Mary Dombovy, MD, for Rochester Regional Health’s Stroke Awareness Night on Friday, May 26 at Frontier Field. Griffin Snyder received care at Golisano Restorative Neurology & Rehabilitation Center at Unity—and you won’t want to miss when he steps onto the mound! His recovery has been nothing short of amazing. After suffering a stroke, this eighth grader had to re-learn how to walk, hold a pen, and feed himself among other things. Griffin is now the pitcher for his travel baseball team and the ball field is his second home. It will be a night to remember for our team of experts who cared for Griffin.
