About me & my work:

When my son Mario was just 10 days old he was diagnosed as having had a perinatal stroke in the right side of his brain, which left him unable to move the left side of his body.

My partner Robert D'Angelo and I founded FightTheStroke.org to gather and share the experiences of families who have been affected by all types of infant and childhood strokes. The social movement wants to open up a dialogue about the devastating effects of this traumatic event, advocating for young stroke survivors and using technology and open medicine as enablers for their better future.

I also act as a member of various Boards of Patients Associations, became an Eisenhower Fellow in 2014 and the first Ashoka Fellow in Italy in 2015.
