While browsing for sites welcoming patient stories, I was thrilled to find this! ... -angiomas/

Happy reading and writing! :)

Best wishes,
Multiple CMs throughout my brain. I have had 4 bleeds requiring surgery between 1987 and 2010. Locations of craniotomies have been: L. parietal, R. parietal, L. temporal and R. thalamus.

Thanks, Patti. I just wanted to follow-up with an update on the story. Julie DeMichiel has since joined our Board of Directors. She hosts a wine tasting every September in Torrington CT that benefits Angioma Alliance. Julie's mother passed away a few years ago. Just this year, Aria, the baby, had brain surgery for a hemorrhaging lesion in the temporal lobe. She is doing well. Finally, the family has welcomed another baby, a little boy, who does not have CCM.
