Welcome friends & family!
I joined in the Stop the Pop Campaign as a state ambassador....
because of my dad! Before his AVM rupture, I had little knowledge about brain aneurysms. Dad's rupture was misdiagnosed as a migraine in March of 2015. After four surgeries and two months in the hospital, he came home!
It can be a struggle to understand what a brain aneurysm is, so a balloon is a perfect representation of a brain aneurysm! The “popping” of the balloon is a great symbol of a ruptured aneurysm.
This brings me to my campaign to be an ambassador in my state to raise awareness and education to Stop the Pop! Check out my goals as a South Dakota ambassador for the BAF:
- raise awareness of this devasting disease affecting 6.5 million Americans
- share images/videoes of me on social media and ask friends and family to do the same
- stay in touch with the BAF to know what advocacy initiatives I will be able to support both in my state and on Capitol Hill.
Remember, brain aneurysms are beatable and treatable!
