Kristen Shafer Englert passed away in November 2013 at the young age of 25 as a result of a brain aneurysm and just three weeks after bringing her first child into the world. Kristen’s family created the annual event, Kristen’s Legacy of Love for Brain Aneurysm Awareness in order to consistently fund the Kristen’s Legacy of Love Chair of Research supporting brain aneurysm awareness and research, as well as to remember and honor Kristen and to help bring more awareness to this devastating disease.
Now celebrating 20 years of service, the Brain Aneurysm Foundation was established in 1994 in Boston, Massachusetts with a mission to promote early detection of brain aneurysms by providing knowledge and raising awareness of the signs, symptoms and risk factors; work with the medical communities to provide support networks for patients and families; as well as to further research that will improve patient outcomes and save lives.
