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.

We have cancelled all "In-Person" meetings for the next few months due to the corona virus pandemic.  We will be hosting "On-Line" meetings (webinars) including guest speakers and open sharing.  We hope you will join us for this new type of support group meeting. 

 

We will update our website and Facebook page as we move forward and new information is available regarding the Covid-19 restrictions in our area.

 

Please remember to follow the CDC guidelines:

1) Practice social distancing (6 feet)

2) Wash your hands often (20 seconds) or use hand sanitizer

3) Wear a mask in public

 

We want to extend our love and support to all of you during this difficult time as each of us tries to manage the corona virus pandemic.
