Senior Producer


In this honest and touching delivery from Ben Vereen, we hear firsthand about his tragic car accident and the stroke he suffered, leaving him paralyzed. Despite the doctors’ grim prognosis, Ben dedicated himself to rehabilitation and followed a daily aspirin regimen. Remarkably, he was back on Broadway in ten months. Following the success and positive media after this spot aired, Ben and Bayer worked closely together on a stroke education campaign, raising awareness and fundraising for the American Stroke Association.
