Advocating for a young stroke survivor.
Founded by a tech savvy couple living in Milan Italy and since 2011 by their son Mario. While their baby initially seemed healthy when he was just 10 days old he was diagnosed as having had a perinatal stroke in the right side of his brain. The stroke left him unable to move the left side of his body. The D Angelos have used mirror neuron rehabilitation to help Mario regain movement. Today Mario is 6 years old and has greatly improved motion. FightTheStroke.org is now a social enterprise aimed to gather and share the experiences of families who ve been affected by all types of juvenile strokes. The social movement wants to open up a dialogue about the devastating effects of strokes at the young age and to advocate for young stroke survivors and their caregivers. This issue is important to the founders for a simple reason because they've been through it themselves with their son Mario. Together as a family and thanks to the support of a very proactive community they re promoting the awareness of this story at events like TED Global (Edimburgh Scotland June 2013) Ciudad de las Ideas (Puebla Mexico November 2013) Doctors 2.0 (Paris France June 2014).
