At eight months pregnant, Mandy Banks had an awful headache that intensified into slurred speech. Banks realized that, at 28, she was having a stroke. Her medical team explains it as a hemorrhagic stroke in which a blood vessel popped in her brain.

Immediately, a C-section was performed to save her baby and right after surgery, an MRI confirmed Banks' popped blood vessel.

She was then airlifted from Rose Medical Center to sister hospital Swedish Medical Center where she underwent intense surgery.
