We're getting a corporate sponsor for the Ironman Fundraiser. Vitaminwater will support our effort to raise awareness for Brain Aneurysms.
Despite having two prominent senators, who were victims of aneurysms, Joe Biden and Arlen Specter, the Foundation has had the hardest time raising money to combat this killer.
Did you know that more people die of brain aneurysms, an almost completely preventable cause, than die of AIDS ? The number of victims of brain aneurysms and related vascular malformations is higher than the number of Leukemia deaths, the seventh cancer killer in the US! And despite all that there is little or no Federal funding for Aneurysm research.
