What is a Brain Aneurysm?

A cerebral aneurysm (also known as an intracranial or an intracerebral aneurysm) is an abnormal, weak spot on a blood vessel wall that causes an outward bulging, likened to a bubble.  A bulging aneurysm can put pressure on a nerve or surrounding brain tissue.  It may also leak or rupture, spilling blood into the surrounding tissue (called a hemorrhage).

Why is this so important?

Brain aneurysms may burst and bleed into the brain, causing serious complications including hemorrhagic stroke, permanent nerve damage or death. Once it has burst, the aneurysm may burst again and rebleed into the brain, and additional aneurysms can also occur.

Once an aneurysm bleeds, there is a 30-40% chance of death, and a 20-25% chance of moderate to severe brain damage, even if an aneurysm is treated.

It is estimated that 6 million people in the US have a brain aneurysm. Every 18 minutes, an aneurysm ruptures.

How YOU can help!

The Joe Niekro Foundation is working tirelessly on expanding our National Patient Support Group Program and advocacy as well as a presence in hospitals and medical facilities during 2018. We feel that it is extremely important to help people affected by brain aneurysms to understand what it is that they are dealing with, physically and emotionally, whether that be a survivor of a brain aneurysm or a loved one, not just at the time of initial diagnosis but long into post recovery.

Take part in honoring brain aneurysm survivors and paying tribute to those who have lost their battle by making a donation (below) during the month of September!
