Reporter: It's a zoom meeting that Nebraska mom Ann Tillery won't soon forget. My speech started to slur. And I could see on my screen that my face was drooping. Reporter: Ann was on a work call. I thought it was odd right away. Reporter: She could see it happening. This zoom screenshot capturing the moment. That was me, actively having a stroke, and then I called 911. Reporter: Ann rushed to the hospital. Doctors say it was her quick action and recognition of sudden symptoms including loss of muscle control and slurred speech that saved her life. Time is tissue. And that means your brain tissue and the sooner you get to us, the sooner we can fix it. Reporter: At first Ann's entire left side was paralyzed. But within 24 hours she was up and walking. And tonight, she has a message.
