Welcome to the Brain Aneurysm Support Community


It has happened. We have received word that the company hosting the website is going under, probably today. When they switch the lights off, this site will be gone forever.  We are working behind the scene, packing and transferring our data as quickly as possible, hoping that none will be lost in the move.

Discussions will move, but your personal mail and blogs will not, so if you get a chance, you might want to copy and save your personal information (blogs, email addresses, etc.) before this site goes down.

The new site will have the same url address as this one, but will look a bit different. There will be a large notice at the top of the page with instructions for how to log in and reclaim your profile. On other communities, this has worked with no problems at all.

We are now hard at work transferring data, and doing the notifications. We hope to see you in our new cyberhome!

Over and out

Your ModSupport Team, TJ, JulesG and Seenie and Ben.
