Kent State Student Defies Odds of High-Risk Brain Surgery

Kent State University freshman Javier Ojeda risked losing it all if surgery to stop bleeding in his brain did not go as planned. Ojeda faced losing the use of his arms, going into a coma, or even dying.

But the night before Easter, Ojeda amazingly walked out of the hospital.

Ojeda and his father talked with KDKA-TV and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette about what motivated Ojeda’s comeback and when the environmental and conservation biology major hopes to return to classes.
