Welcome!

Thank you for your interest in our organization

 

The Tri-State Brain Aneurysm Support Group was founded in 2002 to help brain aneurysm survivors and caregivers navigate the challenges unique to this life-changing medical condition. 

 

We offer support, programming, and a comfortable place to explore the landscape of learning in the face of this sometimes overwhelming diagnosis.

 

In recent years, as research has found familial links behind brain aneurysm formation -- as well as risk factors such as smoking and untreated hypertension that increase the risk of aneurysm rupture -- we have expanded our mission to include community awareness.

 

In part because of the importance of screening in families with a strong history of brain aneurysm, we have begun an outreach to the families of those who have lost loved ones.  

 

Our support group is an independent, non-profit organization. It is run by survivors, family members and friends, with help from supportive organizations. We have no paid employees, no membership dues, no fees.

 

The photos below illustrate some of our recent activities -- including monthly meetings, our 2017 Brain Aneurysm Symposium, an Advocacy Day in Washington, D.C. with two national brain aneurysm organizations and volunteers from around the country, a Holiday Social, a painting session at the Contemporary Arts Center, media appearances, and our Third Annual Brain Aneurysm Walk for Awareness.
