Buddy Portugal 47 Days Documentary: Directed by Emily Portugal. This is for my family – and for yours. On October 7th, 2010, Buddy Portugal suffered a massive stroke to the left side of his brain leaving him unable to speak or move the right side of his body. This is a personal account of the time that followed his stroke, how we dealt with it as a family and the lessons we learned along the way. Over 2,000 American families will face a new stroke today while millions continue to deal with the aftermath of stroke. Ben Franklin stated; ‘By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.’ This is more than just a documentary about stroke; it’s about our families, our lives together, the love we share and how we support one another.
