Pediatric Stroke Awareness Month

May is Pediatric Stroke Awareness month!  And in honor of Charlie's continued recovery, we encourage you to visit the CHASA website to learn more about pediatric stroke. The Children’s Hemiplegia and Stroke Association, CHASA, is a nonprofit  organization founded by parents of children with hemiplegia in 1996 to provide information and support to families of children who have hemiplegia, hemiparesis, or hemiplegic cerebral palsy.  

As for Charlie, he is making amazing strides this month.  He is starting to sit unassisted for more than a minute at a time, is using the sign for "up" to communicate with his family and therapists, is giving high fives and is just starting to drink from a cup.  These are all huge milestones for Charlie and we're all encouraged and thrilled by his progress.  Please share Charlie's story with friends and family in honor of Pediatric Stroke Awareness month.  As always, thank you for your amazing support of the Greenman Family!
