We believe in a society in which there are ample resources, quality treatment options and support for every child and their families impacted by pediatric stroke.
We are dedicated in our mission of building community awareness for pediatric stroke and hope for impacted children and families throughout the Greater Pacific Northwest Region and beyond.
Our Focus Areas
Outreach & Education: Stroke is often the last thing thought among many medical professionals or families. In fact, compared to adult stroke, stroke in children is still viewed as rare. The reality is that pediatric stroke is very real and deserves the same attention in awareness, research and treatments as adult stroke. We bring visibility to the education of signs, symptoms and the importance of a rapid response regarding stroke among children to all communities, general and medical, through events, speaking engagements, and our B.R.A.V.E. Initiative.
Stroke Fund at Seattle Children’s Hospital: Seattle Children's Hospital has one of the only comprehensive stroke programs in the Pacific Northwest Region to recognize and treat stroke in children. In 2015, we established the Stroke Fund at Seattle Children’s to specifically support the financial aid for families whose child has been impacted by stroke, and growth in education and further research. We work together to ensure that some of the greatest needs in the pediatric stroke community can be met with the help of philanthropic funding and support.
Family Focus: We strive to give families hope and resources through our Family Focus section, Social Media tools, Pinterest page and private Family to Family support pages. We share about resources and opportunities that many have come to need while being an advocate in their child’s medical care. At the start of 2016 we launched our first National program, our Warrior Bags and Brave Boxes. Hundreds of these bags and boxes have been delivered to newly diagnosed families and to children recovering after stroke. Even the smallest gesture can bring a new level of hope after stroke!
