After brain hemorrhage, CNBC’s Sharon Epperson emphasizes knowing family medical history

After Sharon Epperson, CNBC's senior personal finance correspondent, survived a brain hemorrhage due to a ruptured aneurysm in September 2016, she devoted herself to learning more about her family's medical history.

Several relatives had passed away following brain hemorrhages in the past, but she'd never asked many questions about it.

"I did know that my mother's oldest sister and her father passed away from brain hemorrhages," Epperson told TODAY. "That was a word I had to learn as a young person, just to know their story. … But I didn't understand how important family medical history can be even decades later."
