Read this post because you happened on this page or because you came into contact in 2014 with the' Association FightTheStroke . org or with its founders Francesca Fedeli , Mario and Roberto D'Angelo.
We are pleased to retrace with you the balance of the main activities of the association: from June 2013 to today we have reached ca. 830,000 views of TED Video Who told for the first time a history of stroke in childhood; We have talked to more than 15 events around the world, reaching over 5000 people who today know of the existence of this problem; We organized the event Call for Brain In Milan, which allowed us to aggregate more than 300 people among physicians, scientists, patients and innovators, to discuss medicine and technology in an open and collaborative way.
In September we represented Italy in the United States thanks to theEisenhower Fellowship on Innovation, where we developed our project for neuro-rehabilitation of children suffering from stroke.
Among the communities closer to us, a great pride for the Closed Group of Facebook: 50 families sharing interest in the dissemination of information on hemiplegia, hemiparesis and Infantile stroke.
And then InterviewsA Video ChannelA Chapter of a nice book And soon a book of our own: because we think that just continuing to talk about it we can raise public awareness to invest in the search for brain damage to children.
Here, all this was possible thanks to you, who together with us have continued to fight and smile: We hope to be able to do something more in 2015, all together. We will not stop.
Happy Holidays and # FightTheStroke !
