Making A Difference

Small things everyday equal big things one day!

Althought the mission and vision of the ANE Pediatric Stroke Foundation is one that will require enormous resources, we believe it is our responsibility to ensure we take a step every day (small or large) towards making our vision a reality.  So many children and families throughout the United States will need support as they journey along the path to recovery and encounter the unfamiliar challenges following a pediatric stroke; however with your help the ANE Pediatric Stroke Foundation can ensure these children and families are provided with the support they need along the way.  Click Here to support a child and family today!
