Rochester, NY -- Mayor-Elect Lovely Warren says on her Facebook page her grandfather is holding on after suffering a stroke.
She says the family will know more about the extent of the damage to his brain in the next 72 hours.
She calls her grandfather a fighter, saying he has been shot four times and fell three stories off a ladder at age 87. And she's saying thanks to those who have offered prayers.
Warren's grandfather was at her side during her recent primary and election victories, and she has spoken often about how he has inspired her.
