Welcome to the Brain Aneurysm Support Community

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

This forum is brought to you by Ben’s Friends in a partnership with the Brain Aneurysm Support Community. The site was based on a need for comprehensive information and support for brain aneurysm patients, their families, and the medical community.

The Brain Aneurysm Support Community is the nation’s premier nonprofit organization solely dedicated to providing critical awareness, education, support, and research funding to reduce the incidence of brain aneurysms. To find out more about The Brain Aneurysm Support Community and for more information on brain aneurysms, go to www.bafound.org

The Brain Aneurysm Support Community is a global community that embraces different cultures, faiths, attitudes and viewpoints. Please be respectful of this.
