Welcome!

Thank you for your interest in our organization

 

The Tri-State Brain Aneurysm Support Group was founded 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 a non-profit organization. It is run by survivors, family members and friends with help from supportive organizations, including Mayfield Brain & Spine and some of the region's major hospitals. 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.
