Brain Aneurysm Support Group
The University of Illinois Hospital Brain Aneurysm Support Group is part of the Brain Aneurysm Foundation which was founded in 1994, the BAF is a non-profit public charity. The support group involves survivors from throughout the Chicago area, covering the western suburbs, northern Illinois and Indiana. The mission of this group is to provide information, education, encouragement and understanding to survivors and caregivers during the ongoing recovery process and is also aimed at supporting those who lost loved ones to a brain aneurysm.
The support group meetings provide an opportunity for reassurance and personal exchange but also information and education on a variety of topics of interest and many suggested by the attendees. In addition there are 2 social events per year: a fall fundraising event and a summer get together for members, family, and friends.
Brain Aneurysm patients and their family and friends 18 and older are invited to participate in monthly meetings. Please be aware that these meetings are not to provide medical advice but to provide peer support.
The group meets monthly on the last Tuesday of the month at 6 PM but can change due to weather and/or scheduling conflicts.
