Raising Awareness About Brain Aneurysms

fm=f_B2Y5od0

WHY BRAIN ANEURYSMS

The founder of the A Round Fore Awareness is one of the very few lucky survivors of a Brain Aneurysm rupture. After his immediate recovery, it was decided that we want to help improve the treatment of those with this disease.

While many have heard of Aneurysms, few really know much about them. So we are going to try and change that and hopefully help some people come in out of the rain too.
