Thanks! Share it with your friends!


After complaining of a severe headache during swim practice, 14-year-old Andee was brought to Children’s where she was diagnosed with an extremely rare acquired brain injury called Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM). As typical with non-traumatic acquired brain injuries, the AVM went undetected until a ruptured caused sudden internal bleeding within the brain. A remarkable young woman, today Andee is in school and was recently honored at the Children’s Foundation’s Hope and Will Ball.

YouTube who cured my Type 2 Diabetes with his herbal medicine. I recommend everyone who also suffering from Diabetes to try his natural herbs medication because it is very effective. I also encourage anyone who is going through any difficulties in health to contact him on his YouTube Channel.

Christian Heredia says:

I have this, in my own personal opinion. I would’ve rather died tbh. Considering I know that feeling of unconsciousness. You almost don’t want to wake up. Especially if you know that you won’t be the same person really.

Andy Campos says:

I myself suffered a cerebellar aneurysmal rupture. I don't remember the days where I was really struggling, and i thank god for that. I've recovered 95% and have gone on to earn 3 collegiate degrees. seeing this brought tears to my eyes. cases like hers are the reason I've studied to go work in rehab departments to help patients such as her and myself. May god bless her to continue her recovery. I'm now a member of Andee's army. From one Andy to another keep on fighting sweet girl. Don't ever give up.

Kirsty Williamson says:

What brave Person she is!
Thanks for this story!

After some Traumatas i was healing my Body , but the hard work was on the mind. I had Amnesia and had to learn even languages Again that i already knew.
Making YouTube Videos helps me to relearn languages i used to know and to help not only my patients but hopefully soon more people who re overweight as a physical therapist and a weight loss coach.

Hope this will inspire someone to start whatever they love doing!

Cheers from Germany

My Dad had his AVM Ruptured on October 27 2018. Went into surgery and he's been in a coma since the surgery of the day of the rupture and though it's only been about a week since he's been in Coma. I feel like it's been years and waiting for some movement or him wake up feels like an eternity
