You might know someone just like Doris Connor. She was a very healthy and active nurse enjoying life. She suffered from a ruptured brain aneurysm at the young age of 59 and subsequently passed away. It happened just like that. It happens to many people just like that. That is why it is critically important to raise awareness of this terrible affliction—so people can improve their chances of surviving.
