After suffering from a ruptured aorta, a major stroke and several acute strokes that took place while in surgery, Brandon Scott Ray’s life was forever altered. He lost his ability to walk, speak and sing, a talent he loved since he was a teenager.
Once discharged from a local hospital, Scott spent nearly three months undergoing intense rehabilitation at multiple TIRR Memorial Hermann locations, including TIRR Memorial Hermann – The Woodlands and TIRR Memorial Hermann – Greater Heights Outpatient Rehabilitation. It was at TIRR Memorial Hermann – Greater Heights where Scott worked with speech therapists to help restore the use of his vocal cords. Scott’s wife, Jessie, prayed for him to be able to sing again, so he could resume playing guitar and singing as he had done for more than a decade.
Watch the video below as Brandon shares his story and sings the song Jessie inspired him to write.
