In January of 2000 I survived a brain aneurysm hemorrhage. I was lucky enough to be right near an amazing hospital and to have a mall security guard care enough to stop to see if I was OK. I was even luckier that he was one of a few people that recognized the signs of a rupturing aneurysm. I am raising money to support research and public awareness programs so others can recognize the signs just as my security guard did. Please join me on my journey.
About Brain Aneurysm Foundation:
The Brain Aneurysm Foundation was established in 1994 by a renowned Boston neurosurgeon and neurosurgical nurse practitioner who recognized unmet needs among their patients and families as well as a perilous lack of awareness about brain aneurysms among the public and the medical community. Over the ensuing 25 years, the nonprofit Brain Aneurysm Foundation has grown to become the globally recognized leader in brain aneurysm awareness, education, support, advocacy, and research funding.
Guided by a Medical Advisory Board of internationally respected brain aneurysm specialists affiliated with the world’s leading medical centers, and with grassroots support from legions of survivors and families across North America, the Brain Aneurysm Foundation has an audacious, but achievable, goal — a world without death or disability from brain aneurysms.
