Welcome to The Brain Aneurysm Foundation Support Community

The purpose of the Brain Aneurysm Foundation Support Community is to provide a forum for patients and their families affected by brain aneurysms to find support.

The Brain Aneurysm Foundation developed from a close relationship between patients and healthcare professionals who identified the need for comprehensive information and support for brain aneurysm patients, their families, and the medical community.

The Brain Aneurysm Foundation is the nation’s only nonprofit organization solely dedicated to providing critical awareness, education, support, and research funding to reduce the incidence of brain aneurysms.
