Hi everyone, as many of you may know, I lost my mom several years ago from the sudden rupture of a brain aneurysm at the age of 63. Having also lost my grandmother this same way, it prompted me to have a screening. I learned that I have a brain aneurysm that will require surgical intervention. I realized at that moment how easy it is to detect something that can save your life! Brain aneurysms, as we have since learned, affect people of all ages in many different ways….my story is only one.
Please join me to help provide support to the brain aneurysm community in Connecticut & raise public awareness regarding early detection & treatment of brain aneurysms by participating in my 1st Annual CT 5K Walk.
