  • May 2022 CALL FOR VIDEOS OF PEDIATRIC STROKE WARRIORS! For Pediatric Stroke Awareness Month in May, we want to see how your stroke warrior has adapted to life after stroke by seeing how they participate in everyday life. Do they love to ride a bike? Play sports? Cook? Dance? Color? We’d love to see how they’re living their best life after stroke. Videos will be shared on our Facebook and Twitter pages, and we’ll compile all videos at the end of the month into an easy-to-view playlist on YouTube. If interested in participating, please email IAPS Board Member and social media liaison Camie Rodan at camie.rodan@gmail.com with your video and a brief 2 – 3 sentences description of you (if you are the pediatric stroke warrior) or your child. You can see the video that was created last year from our warriors all over the world here. Our goal is to post a video every day in May to celebrate our kids!

 

May 2022 Pediatric Stroke Awareness t-shirts! Our friend Dana Morgan of Positively Tees (and mom to a pediatric stroke warrior) designed the May 2022 awareness t-shirts that celebrate and honor our pediatric stroke warriors! They include names of 300 of our stroke warriors! The sales have now closed, but we want to say thank you to more than 1,100 of you that purchased shirts! Dana donated $5 of every shirt sold to IAPS! Thank you so much Dana!
