If you’ve been hanging around my stroke blog for some time you know I post often on pediatric stroke awareness and the importance of stroke education for the young faces of stroke.  To get caught up on the subject simply key in the search box on this site for  posts on “pediatric stroke” and see how many articles you’ll find.   I sometimes wonder if  I’m speaking to deaf ears when I challenge  both the National Stroke Association and the American Heart/Stroke Association to “do more”  and allocate resources to fund creative educational programs to improve pediatric stroke awareness.

Well, perhaps someone locally was listening anyway.  Thank you Jamie Coyle for sharing your story and stepping up for Pediatric Stroke Awareness.  For those of you who don’t know stroke survivor and Cumberland RI resident Jamie Coyle here’s the link to her feature story on the National Stroke Association website:   Faces of Stroke-Jamie Coyle

Jamie stepped outside of her comfort zone and while doing so stepped up to the challenge to speak up for stroke. Thank you Jamie and thanks to the National Stroke Association for rewarding her courage!
