Hanover, MA (PRWEB) December 14, 2011
As 2011 comes to a close, The Brain Aneurysm Foundation is launching its annual appeal to help raise funds to support brain aneurysm awareness. Believe in Making a Difference will help raise funds needed to increase awareness of brain aneurysms and how early detection can make a difference.
In the United States alone, an estimated 6 million people in the United States have an unruptured brain aneurysm. Each year, about 27,000 people in the U.S. will suffer from a ruptured brain aneurysm. About 40% of those experiencing a ruptured brain aneurysm will die. Those that survive often face significant challenges, greatly impacting their lives and the lives of their families.
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. The Brain Aneurysm Foundation hopes to improve these tragic statistics and save lives by funding vital research and increasing awareness.
In 2012, the Brain Aneurysm Foundation will continue its awareness efforts, including supporting community events and fundraisers across the nation. The foundation will also continue to fund research directed at improved treatment modalities, and technological advances that will ultimately improve outcomes for patients with brain aneurysms. In addition, The foundation looks to expand efforts in promoting early detection of brain aneurysms, both among the medical community and the general public.
Donations to support these efforts can be made online at http://www.bafound.org. Gifts by check can be made out to The Brain Aneurysm Foundation and mailed to The Brain Aneurysm Foundation, 269 Hanover Street, Building 3, Hanover, MA 02339.
