After suffering a stroke in early 2018, Senator John Fetterman of Pennsylvania has been working hard to adjust to life in the Senate. Fetterman, a Democrat, was sworn into office in 2019 after winning a special election to fill the seat vacated by the death of Senator Arlen Specter.
Since his stroke, Fetterman has had to relearn how to walk and talk, and he has had to adjust to the physical and mental challenges that come with being a senator. He has also had to adjust to the long hours and the intense pressure of working in the Senate.
Despite these challenges, Fetterman has persevered and is now an active member of the Senate. He has been actively involved in issues such as health care, gun control, and immigration reform. He has also been a vocal advocate for criminal justice reform and for increasing access to mental health services.
Fetterman’s story is an inspiring example of how people can overcome adversity and still make a difference in their communities. He has shown that with hard work and determination, anything is possible.
