Brain Aneurysm Research Funding
As many of you know, I am raising awareness and funds for the Brain Aneurysm Foundation. A brain aneurysm, a weak outpouching in a brain blood vessel, ruptures every 18 minutes and is fatal 40% of the time.
Given the severity of this disease, I decided to raise money for brain aneurysm research by running a 100 mile race at the beginning of my final year of neurosurgical residency. On August 18, 2018 I plan to run the Leadville 100, a challenging ultramarathon which starts in Leadville, CO and traverses the Rocky Mountains at altitudes ranging from 9,000 to 13,000 feet. To finish, runners must complete the course in less than 30 hours. Please support me and the Brain Aneurysm Foundation as I attempt this endeavor! Thank you so much for your support!
The Brain Aneurysm Foundation is the world's premier nonprofit organization solely dedicated to providing critical awareness, education, support and research funding to reduce the incidence of brain aneurysm ruptures.
All proceeds go towards:
- Funding and supporting new research.
- Providing support and educational materials to the medical community, the newly diagnosed, survivors, family members, friends and the general public regarding the facts, treatment options, and recovery process for brain aneurysms.
- Increasing awareness of brain aneurysms by promoting National Brain Aneurysm Awareness Month in September and by distributing aneurysm awareness materials to Emergency Departments in every hospital and to the community.
With your support, we can start making a real investment to help fight the devastation caused by brain aneurysms and save lives. All donations are tax-deductible and every dollar raised goes to help support the mission of the Brain Aneurysm Foundation.
If you cannot make a donation at this time, please forward this link to everyone you know. Post this on your Facebook and Twitter pages. Every donation counts, no matter what the amount.
The loss of a loved one is devastating. Yet, we are always reminded by our hearts – how lucky we have been to know those that we loved even in our loss.
Thank you for your thoughtfulness. Your generosity and support is greatly appreciated.
