Giving support to London's teenage stroke survivors

Strokes are often associated with older people, however they also affect hundreds of children in the UK every year, and can have devastating consequences. Now experts and parents of young stroke survivors are joining forces to raise awareness of the condition. 

We spoke to stroke expert Dr Anne Gordon from Evelina London Children's Hospital and the parent of a young stroke survivor from London, Renée Wallen.

The Stroke Association is hosting the National Childhood Stroke Support and Information Day on Saturday 14 May 2016 at 130 Shaftesbury Avenue, London.
