When Rose DeGregorio, Rose DeGregorio, an instructional support teacher at Bethel Park School District’s Abraham Lincoln Elementary School and avid runner, suffered a stroke in her home last year, it was her middle son, Jon – who wasn’t supposed to be there – who rescued her.

On May 1, 2022, DeGregorio, 58, suffered the stroke sometime during the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon, but it wasn’t until her 27-year-old son, Jon, a physical therapist, dropped by later that morning and recognized his mother was in crisis that she learned how sick she was.
