If there is something you see on the IAPS Facebook page that you feel is valuable information you can “share” what you see to help get information out to your Facebook friends.
Share your child's story with the media, either online or within your local news organizations. One way of doing this is by joining the American Heart Association's "You're the Cure" or the National Stroke Association's "Stroke Advocacy Network"
Check our Research page and see if your child qualifies for research studies and/or clinical trials recruiting in your area. You may also find some that are within a reasonable traveling distance or even an online study.
