Familydan.org is represented by Francesca Fedeli and Roberto D’Angelo, an Italian tech-savvy couple, health activists and brain enthusiasts, advocating for pediatric stroke survivors. The pair gave birth to their son Mario, who was diagnosed as having had a perinatal stroke. The D’Angelos used mirror neuron rehabilitation to help Mario regain movement. They also founded FightTheStroke.org, a non-profit to advocate for pediatric stroke survivors. Together with some renowned scientific institutions, they’re developing an innovative interface, able to map affected parts of the children’s body and engage them in more efficient therapy.
