Children's Hemiplegia and Stroke Association
The Children's Hemiplegia and Stroke Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, offering support and information to families of infants, children and young adults who have hemiplegic cerebral palsy, hemiplegia, hemiparesis, prenatal stroke, childhood stroke, infant stroke, perinatal stroke, neonatal stroke, in utero stroke and stroke in neonates.

We'd like for you to know that you are not alone. Hemi-Kids is a worldwide network of over 900 families of children who have hemiplegia or hemiplegic cerebral palsy. 

International Alliance for Pediatric Stroke (IAPS)
IAPS was established to facilitate collaboration among the many international pediatric stroke communities. The purpose is to provide a stronger, more united voice to effectively advocate for newborns, babies, and children who have had a stroke.

Pediatric Stroke Network
Because childhood stroke is relatively uncommon, but steadily on the rise, finding other parents to connect with can often be difficult. The goal of this site is to bring together friends and families of infant or childhood stroke survivors from around the world.

Sickle Cell Disease Association of America
The SCDAA's mission is to promote finding a universal cure for sickle cell disease while improving the quality of life for individuals and families where sickle cell-related conditions exist.
