I have alcohol running through my veins!!!!

Literally...well, ok not really. But I do get alcohol injections about once a month (and not the "fun" kind!)

I have a facial Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) and am receiving ethyl alcohol embolizations with Dr. Wayne Yakes in Denver.

So while the alcohol isn't actually running through my veins (that would be really bad) it is being injected into them to destroy the AVM vessels and eventually provide a cure!

Check out my website to read my story about life with a facial AVM, meet my doctors, and stay up to date on my treatments through my "Denver Trip" reports!

Andrea's AVM story!

Andrea has posted her story and her BEAUTIFUL picture up on my website! Please take a moment to visit my AVM Sisters page, and read about her experience and the battle she is facing to get approval for alcohol treatments.

She has been dealing with complications from her AVM, all the while preparing for and fighting her denial through an appeal. What a strong and determined woman! I'm so glad to have her as my "AVM Sister!"
