Establishment of a Stroke Center (CTB) at the Dr. v. Hauner Children's Clinic
Stroke research. Together with the German Stroke Foundation, the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation supports the establishment of a stroke centre in the Dr. von Hauner Children's Hospital. 300 to 500 children and adolescents in Germany suffer a stroke every year - a third of them already in the womb or during birth. For parents, this diagnosis is a shock because the subject of stroke is still hardly known to children. Affected families are desperate and doctors are often unaware.
