The Tri-State Brain Aneurysm Support Group, Inc. was founded in 2002 to serve the families of brain aneurysm survivors in Northern Kentucky, Southern Ohio, and Southeastern Indiana. At the time it was one of the earliest such organizations for brain aneurysm survivors and caregivers in the U.S., and remains one of the more active.
The core function of our non-profit organization is to provide information and a comfortable, welcoming environment for those affected by a brain aneurysm. Historically we have done this through monthly meetings, social events, and an annual symposium featuring presentations by neurosurgeons, researchers, health care professionals and survivors. In recent years our members have participated in research studies conducted at the University of Cincinnati.
Largely because of what that and other research has shown, and because of technological advances in diagnosing and treating aneurysms before they rupture, we have launched efforts to increase public awareness of brain aneurysm and the importance of screening for families that might be at risk.
Our support group is an independent, 501c3 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.
