Roberto D'Angelo and Francesca Fedeli are a tech-savvy couple living in Milan, Italy. He is the Office 365 Lead at Microsoft Italy, driving business and marketing strategy for the software while also working on improving Microsoft’s Public Cloud. She is the head of brand communication and social media at ING Direct Italia. The pair married in 2002 and, in 2011, gave birth to their son, Mario. While he initially seemed healthy, when he was just 10 days old, he was diagnosed as having had a perinatal stroke in the right side of his brain. The stroke left him unable to move the left side of his body.
The D’Angelos have used mirror neuron rehabilitation to help Mario regain movement, with amazing results. Today, Mario is 2-years-old and has greatly improved motion. The pair has also founded FightTheStroke.org, a non-profit to gather and share the experiences of families who’ve been affected by all types of infant and childhood strokes.
