Thank you!

The International Alliance for Pediatric Stroke (IAPS) would like to thank everyone who has added their child’s story to the World Map on the United 4 Pediatric Stroke website. We are continuing the campaign until the end of May, so don't forget to check out our My Stroke Story campaign, add a Twibbon to your social media profiles, and see the information in this special edition newsletter for some other great opportunities to make a difference.

An opportunity to share your experience on treatment decisions after your child’s stroke.

The American Heart Association (AHA) and Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) offer you the opportunity to play a key role in influencing topics for future scientific research in heart disease and stroke. If your submission is selected, you could win $1,000.

You are invited to share your experience, the decisions made in determining your child’s treatment plans, and the factors that influenced those decisions. This will allow them to guide research and lead to better care tailored to the specific needs of patients. How did those decisions impact your quality of life or your child’s quality of life? Here is your chance to share your experience with limited therapy visits due to insurance constraints. Are there therapies that you would like to use for your child but insurance won’t cover any of the expense because they are “experimental” in children? How has having a child who suffered a stroke impacted your family unit and siblings? What decisional dilemmas have you faced?

All submissions must be received by June 8, 2016.

Please take this important challenge and share your insights. Your story matters.
