Early detection saves lives, help us by Sponsoring a Screening
The Missy Project is working tirelessly to establish an "early detection standard of care" to prevent deaths in children and adults from Brain Aneurysm Disease (BAD). Death from BAD is sudden and its tragic impact on our society is under-recognized.
The Missy Project began in 1999 after the death of Missy Magel who passed away suddenly from a brain aneurysm while at summer camp. Missy was only 12 when she died. Missy was my older cousin.
The Missy Project offers the only FREE MRI Screening in the country. This research programs benefits those who family members are affected by brain aneurysm disease. Like a mammogram is used to detect breast cancer, an MRI will detect the presence of an aneurysm in the brain. Our Community Screening Program has been operating since 2006 and sponsors screenings free to at risk individuals who have had a family member affected by Brain Aneurysm Disease. Early detection screenings can save lives, please help us provide them to the families and children at risk.
