GUIDED BY CONVICTION THAT ALL CHILDREN MUST BE EQUAL AT BIRTH, FIGHTTHESTROKE.org WANTS TO ENSURE A BETTER FUTURE FOR YOUNG STROKE SURVIVORS AND THEIR FAMILIES.

FightTheStroke exists to meet the need for knowledge and support to the families impacted by the management of a survivor from stroke; to educate the awareness that children, even those not yet born, may be affected by stroke; to inspire new generations and foster the development and adoption of 'disruptive' therapies.

Because an accident at birth should not dictate the future of these children.

What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

We try to restore hope to those families that start facing a disability entering in their places: because an accident at birth should not dictate the future of these children and of their families.

How does this research relate to our use cases and personas?

The caregiver that thought to be a mom - the unusual suspect.
