With a minimum of 1 in 50 people walking around with an unruptured brain aneurysm, with 30,000 people a year rupturing and half those people dying, there is more research to be done! There are still too many unanswered questions. When do aneurysms form? What makes an aneurysm rupture? Is my loved one at risk? These questions combined with the fact the federal government only spends $2.08 on brain aneurysm research per year per person affected, is why we must continue to fund research. The statistics are unacceptable, and brain aneurysms are treatable if you know you have one. We must do better and through research we will!
In the last 15 years, the Brain Aneurysm Foundation has funded over $4 million to 143 projects. The research has led to important insights which have been shared with the international medical community. Because of the support from our donors, the foundation is the largest private funder of brain aneurysm research.

“The Brain Aneurysm Foundation supports impactful research for a disease that often goes under the radar. BAF funding provides research groups with critical seed funding to develop research projects that can go on to receive federal funding or interest from the private space.”
