Three years ago, Clinton resident Jordan Keshler suffered a stroke and was in a coma for two days.

Keshler worsened during a procedure to implant a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester. In the months that followed, the 41-year-old Barker Brook golf course superintendent wondered how much longer he could hold out.
