Break Dance Artist’s Unbelievable Recovery from Brain Aneurysm

Peoples!  This is a truly inspiring story and you absolutely must watch the video.  It is moving to say the least!

Not even a year ago, Richard ‘Steelo’ Vazquez couldn’t walk or talk.

Celebrity break dancer “Steelo” is best known for his spins, breaks and slides on “Dancing With the Stars.”  The 32-year-old father was suffered a brain aneurysm, and has now made his way back to the stage.  He was one of 6 million people who suffer from aneurysms every year. Forty percent of them die.

After a grueling dance practice last June, Steelo came home with a severe headache and was vomiting.  Thinking he only had a tweaked muscle, he didn’t immediately go to the doctor.  At church later that weekend, on Father’s Day, Steelo suffered an aneurysm.

Emergency brain surgery saved his life, but four additional ruptures took away Steelo’s ability to speak, walk and dance.  During months of excruciating rehabilitation, Steelo never gave up hope that he could recover and return to the dance floor.
