In the widely overwhelming sea of resources that Google can provide, some good some not so much. When you google "brain aneurysm" - the results can be a bit much for both survivors and caregivers. These are some of my trusted organizations, who I have worked with and support. Of course there are many great nonprofits that work for the cause, but these are some of my trusted friends in the brain aneurysm and stroke community:
Brain Aneurysm Foundation
The foundation’s mission is to provide information about and raise awareness of the symptoms and risk factors of brain aneurysms to prevent ruptures and subsequent death and disability; work with medical communities to provide support networks for patients and families; and advance research to improve patients’ outcomes and save lives.

Joe So Rocks
He’s worn various hats from retail store owner to artist manager to business consultant, but after suffering a major hemorrhagic stroke in August 2016, he’s been on a journey of self-discovery and seeking out what truly gives him joy in life. Some new hats he’s trying on include writer, comedian, host, guy who now goes to the gym, world traveller and he’s always trying on more. He’s on a mission to create a life worthy of the gift he was given when he survived his stroke. For his opinions and views on life, stroke survival, mind/body transformation, nerd culture, films, pop culture and everything in between, check out his blog on a weekly basis for new stories and articles. Whether you read it or not, Joe’s still going to have a laugh because 90% of what he says is for his own entertainment. He is also the creator and host of the Neuro Nerds Podcast.
