Welcome to My BrainPower Page
In March 2014, I sustained a ruptured brain aneurysm and due to the quick diagnosis and emergency care of the hospital I am a survivor. I was very fortunate to have survived such a serious and life-threatening incident, unlike so many others.
My wife, Nicola and my children, Nicolas, Nolan and Rihanna along with my immediate family were my strength and a major factor in my recovery. They all assisted me at every turn ensuring that all follow up and day to day care was met at all times.
As a small business owner, I am very grateful for my Business Partner, Luis Segarra, who offered support and ensured that the company ran smoothly until my return. The encouragement of my family, friends and colleagues was a tremendous support and within six months I was able to return to work.
Team DeFreitas is raising awareness and funds for the Brain Aneurysm Foundation and we are asking you to join with us. We would like to be able to count on you and ask that in lieu of any gifts for our upcoming marriage vow renewal celebration that you instead make a donation to the organization so that together we can help them fulfill their mission. Giving is easy! You can read more about what we do here as well as make a secure donation online.
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.
