In one unexpected moment, Bob Perrin's direction in life changed.
Incredibly, it happened as he took a bite of pizza.
No, it wasn't a conscious decision; instead, it was a startling medical crisis that took place over Christmas vacation.
"It was December 23, 2003, and I was in Frackville Mall eating pizza when it happened," says the Coaldale resident.
Within a split second, Perrin's eyes rolled back in his head and he lost awareness.
At that point, Perrin, now 48, had suffered a midbrain aneurysm.
