THE STORY:

 

TOGETHER we can….Make a Difference

Help us learn more and find a cure.

Cavernous malformations are vascular lesions comprised of clusters of abnormally dilated blood vessels.  These lesions can be found in the brain, spinal cord, and, rarely, in other areas of the body including the skin and retina. Cavernous angiomas are estimated to occur in approximately one out of every 500-600 people, that is approximately 0.2% of the general population.  While presentation of cavernous angioma is not uncommon in children, individuals often show the first sign of symptoms in their 20’s or 30’s. 

Heather’s Story

Heather, age 22 and a college senior, was home on Christmas Break when she suffered her first stroke.  During that hospital stay she was diagnosed with a Cavernous Malformation. This malformation bled again in June, September and twice in November.  The only proven treatment is brain surgery and with Heather’s malformation located in her Thalamus (very deep within the brain) the surgeons did not want to operate for fear of leaving here permanently disabled or cause her to lose her life.  This malformation became life threatening so surgery became necessary in November  Heather is presently in the hospital and on her way to rehab.   A dollar really can make a difference.  Please make a donation now.
