Johnna Kelly, Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital to raise awareness for men's health at Chicago Bulls game
Dec 6, 2016 4:28 PM - DOWNERS GROVE -- A local college student who underwent brain surgery was among a group of Advocate Health Care patients who were special guests of the health system at a recent Chicago Bulls game. Aurora University basketball player Marquis Howard suffered from a brain aneurysm during practice in December 2015. The following day, Dr. Hamad Farhat, a neurosurgeon at Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital, performed surgery on Howard's brain to repair the weak spot in the artery that hemorrhaged. Howard has since recovered and is back to playing college basketball.
