BENEFITING: CHILDREN'S HEMIPLEGIA AND STROKE ASSN.
May happens to be Pediatric Stroke Awareness month. For the last several years I have written to the Governors of Massachusetts requesting them to make a proclamation that May be considered Pediatric Stroke Awareness month. I do this because My son Spenser suffered a stroke while in utero. It was nothing that we could have stopped...It's just something that happens. He walked when he was supposed to, he rode a bike when he was supposed to, he is in the 4th grade and doing great, he is a engineering genius, he has a nice right handed stroke when playing baseball. He is awesome and doing all of the things that a 10 year old should be doing. This is something that I have taken on as a Dad of a pediatric stroke survivor.... I will donate to the CHASA the Children's Hemiplegia and Stroke Association. I will also send out facts about Pediatric stroke and my part of spreading awareness.
