Welcome to the 2018 Pediatric Stroke Awareness campaign, Life After Stroke, brought to you by the ! Throughout the month of May, we will be publishing stories of what life is like after a pediatric stroke. Families from all over the world have been sending in their stories of #LifeAfterStroke–what it has meant for their child, what impact it has had on their family and advice for other parents just starting out on this journey. These are powerful reminders about what happens after a baby, child or teen suffers a stroke. We encourage you to read them, share them on social media, and leave a comment if you would like to let these families know your thoughts. We think you will be able to relate to some of these feelings and stories bravely shared by these parents and adults impacted by pediatric stroke.
You can also post your child’s story on our interactive World Map and join the almost 400 families who have already honored their child by placing a marker. We know there are thousands of children who have been impacted by stroke, and this is a way to visually see just how many there are!
Please see our Resource page to learn more about pediatric stroke and share this information with family, friends, co-workers, teachers, school nurses, coaches, fireman, police, paramedics, healthcare providers, day care providers, and anyone else that should know what a stroke looks like in babies, children, and teens.
Together we can #MakeMayMatter and raise awareness about #LifeAfterStroke for babies, children, and teens!
