Welcome to My BrainPower Page
As many of you know, I am the survivor of five brain aneurysms- four of which ruptured and one that was found recently before rupture and was coiled. Ruptured brain aneurysms are fatal in about 50% of cases. Of those who survive, about 66% suffer some permanent neurological deficit. Needless to say, I am lucky to be alive!
I am heading out on May 31, 2021 for a hike across the country to raise awareness and funds for the Brain Aneurysm Foundation. My #HikeForBAF will start in Pokomoke, MD and head down to St. Augustine, FL through the southern states to Las Vegas, NV and end in Astoria, OR. I am hoping to share my survivor story along the way and also make sure the public is aware of the signs and symptoms of brain aneurysms.
I have set up this BrainPower fundraising page and would like to count on you to make a donation to the BAF so that I can help them fulfill their mission. Giving is easy! You can read more about what the foundation does 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.
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.
Thank you for your thoughtfulness. Your generosity and support is greatly appreciated.
