For the longest time, Burgundy for Life did not have a “central homepage,” where all of our initiatives and projects were linked from. Today, I finally set one up! The URL is http://burgundyforlife.org!
I hope you will bookmark this website as well, so that when new projects or initiatives are added to Burgundy for Life, you will be the first to know!
In related news, our Facebook Page now has over 2550 Likes! (Maybe we will reach 2600 before 2016? A girl can dream, right?)
Our Facebook Support Group is as active as ever, with 780 Members, and I recently celebrated my 4th Annie-Versary (craniotomy anniversary).
Pretty great ways to send off 2015, and welcome 2016!
I hope you will look forward to everything we can accomplish together in the upcoming year! 🙂

September is Brain Aneurysm Awareness Month in the United States, and the AVM Awareness Project is looking forward to having a month filled with awareness and information bombardment on our Facebook Page.
Please join us in our effort to spread awareness by using the #BrainAneurysmAwarenessMonth tag on Facebook and Twitter, SHARING our banner (and daily updates), and using the banner as your profile image! If you are a blogger, please feel free to use these images in your blog, to share with your readers information about Brain Aneurysms, or just to show your support for the movement! (You can find the banner images at the bottom of this post!)
The “folder” that we will be uploading all of our images and graphics for this month will be HERE, so you can easily find and share them on your own walls.
Every day, as much as possible, I am going to edit this post with a new fact, resource, or video about Brain Aneurysms, so keep a look out for updates every day!

Can you share with us how YOU are going to be “celebrating” Brain Aneurysm Awareness Month?
The “Stories” section of the website houses brave journeys by survivors and their supporters, or of warriors who lost their lives to AVM/aneurysms despite their fights.
The section has a page dedicated to every individual, and we accept any kinds of “stories” ranging from narratives, poetry, an autobiographies, to videos, compositions, photography, and paintings. Anything that tells a STORY about you or your loved one’s journey with AVM/aneurysms is welcome!
For more information, please visit “Stories,” or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org!
The “Offline” section houses a calendar, directory of regional support groups, list of upcoming events, a submission page for events and support groups, and a page dedicated to ways YOU can help spread awareness.
The calendar was set up by Melissa of Spookydot, and has a monthly calendar list of support group meetings, and when we have events listed, of the dates of events. You can search via categories (events or support groups) when there are events to be listed, and when you click on the occasions in the calendar, it will take you to a page filled with information and maps to the location of the event/support group meeting.
Please submit your regional support groups and upcoming events related to AVM/aneurysms HERE! We look forward to adding more and more to the directory!
We have also reorganized the Site Map so that it is much easier to navigate and use now. If you are ever lost, give it a visit!
New links have been added to the link directory, and new articles for supporters. There have been updated everywhere, and tweakings of pages as well, so be sure to check out all of the sections!
Also, I made a video for my graphic design class final project. 🙂 This was the first semester I started working with Photoshop, and I don’t think my professor will ever understand what tremendous difference she has made in my life and the network of amazing people I have created thanks to now using Photoshop and Illustrator to create Aneurysm/AVM Awareness related things!
Welcome to the new and improved version of “AVM Awareness Project,” formally known as “Arteriovenous Malformation and Aneurysm Information & Link Directory,” or just as “AVMalformation.Org.”
We have new people, more content, and still enthusiasm to bring you information and resources about Arteriovenous Malformation and Aneurysms. New with this update are the “Stories” section, where visitors are encouraged to share their stories and products with us to share with the other visitors, and “Offline,” where we will be having a calendar filled with regional support group meetings and events, as well as pages dedicated to listing regional support groups and various events, such as 5Ks and fundraisers.
Please visit #AneurysmAwareness Project for Aneurysm/AVM Awareness Stickers.
The upgrade in interface was made possible by generous donation of time and skills by Melissa of Spookydot.
