Lois Rinna is a survivor.
She previously won the battle against her breast cancer, and also later survived a stroke in 2013. Yes, if you didn’t know this was her second stroke in 8 years. Her first stroke left her months of rehabilitation, learning how to walk and talk again. Though she was one of the lucky ones, she wasn’t the same after her first stroke.
As if the medical problems weren’t enough, Lois also was notably attacked by David Carpenter, the man who became known as the Trailside Killer in 1960. Reports said that she was picked up by the killer at the bus stop, who drove her down the deserted road. Then, he attempted to rape her and possibly kill her. But luckily, a military policeman saw them drive down this deserted road (where no one was supposed to go). So, he followed them and saved Lois.
