Board of Directors
Denise is an Executive Assistant with Verso Corporation. Denise and her husband Joe have one daughter, Victoria, who is a graduate student at the University of Cincinnati. In April 2015 just after completing a 5k, Denise's husband Joe suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm. It was during Joe’s recovery that she learned of the Tri-State Brain Aneurysm Support Group. In 2018 she joined the TSBASG and served on the steering committee where she oversaw social media efforts, and led the re-branding efforts of the TSBASG to include a new logo and website.
Roberta O'Brien Holden has served on the steering committee since 2006. She has worked at Mayfield Brain and Spine since 1993. She is passionate about helping patients with brain aneurysms and their caregivers. She organized the first walk for aneurysm awareness in 2012.
John Abraham is a graduate of UC College of Engineering and Xavier MBA program. He and his wife Julie live in Kenwood. They have three grown children. He is the owner of Atlas Vac Machine located in Reading where they manufacture medical device tray sealers used worldwide by the medical device industry in the cleanroom packaging of a wide number of implants, endosurgery devices, orthopedic implants, transplant tissues and even vascular surgery devices.
John believes you are given only so many days on the Lord’s earth and, as an aneurysm survivor, he believes he is in the Bonus Round. Make every day count.
Our Mission is to provide information, education, encouragement and understanding to survivors, caregivers and those who have lost loved ones to brain aneurysms.
Our support group is run by survivors, family members and friends, with help from supportive organizations. We have no paid employees, no membership dues, no fees.
