I hope that I am not this dumb and the time of this meeting is provided, but I can’t see it anywhere. Can anyone share what time this group meets? Thanks!

Brian,

It’s a good question. Martha’s previous posts seem consistent in an 11am-12:15pm time and since she is based in Massachusetts, I’d assume EDT.

@mdilor2 it would be great if you could confirm…

Richard

It’s by no means a dumb question!

I found it by doing a search on the BAF website https://www.bafound.org/support-group/beth-israel-deaconess-brain-aneurysm-support-group/

It’s from 11-12:15 Eastern time every third Wednesday.

Hi it is Suszanne from BC here. Could you give me the date of the next Virtual Meeting so I may write it down on my fridge calendar please. :grinning:

Suzanne, usually no one replies from the BAF on questions which means we have to do our own sleuthing. I just did a search on their site and came up with this Beth Israel Deaconess Brain Aneurysm Support Group - Brain Aneurysm Foundation. It list all the dates for this year!

I did a bit of sleuthing yesterday as well. @Suszanne is in British Columbia, so I was looking for something appropriately local. While there appears to be a web page to donate to BAF Canada on www.bafound.org, I didn’t find any local support groups. So I’d recommend joining one of the virtual sessions that are advertised in this category from time to time and ask about Canadian groups.

Thanks @Moltroub and @DickD. I wonder why there are no support groups in BC. I will try one of the virtual sessions and ask about Canadian groups. I checked out the Bee Foundation which might be good and will check out Beth Israel Deaconess Brain Aneurysm Support Group. I appreciate all the help and support I get. Thank you, thank you, thank you! :grinning: :+1:

It may be that BC doesn’t have enough cerebral aneurysms to start a group! I’m guessing there’s more funding if the title the support groups use is under the generic brain injury of which there are many in BC. But I am not familiar with taxes and politics in BC. You might have some luck just searching stroke. Here’s a start https://www.brainstreams.ca/resources/

There are two BAF groups in Seattle, Washington… not sooo far away.

And

The UW says it does online / Zoom calls but the page hasn’t been updated since 2021. However, @Suszanne maybe write to one of the emails and ask about online meetings or Canadian groups. I assume either of the Washington meets would at least be in the same time zone as you.
