Maine Brain Aneurysm Support Group @ Dana Health Ctr. at MMC

Maine Brain Aneurysm Support Group @ Dana Health Ctr. at MMC |  |  |

The Maine Brain Aneurysm Support Group offers information, education, encouragement and understanding to all individuals who have been affected by a brain aneurysm.

We have arranged for a special viewing of the film: “Life. Support. Music”

In 2004, Jason Crigler’s life was taking off. He was one of New York’s hottest young guitarists, his new CD was due for release and his wife, Monica, was pregnant with their first child. Then, at a gig in Manhattan, Jason suffered a near-fatal brain hemorrhage from a ruptured AVM. His doctors doubted he would ever emerge from his near-vegetative state. The astonishing journey that followed, documented by friend and filmmaker Eric Daniel Metzgar, is a stirring family saga and a portrait of creative struggle in the face of overwhelming tragedy.

Doctors told Jason’s family, “if he makes it through the night, there won’t be much left of him”. Days passed, and Jason’s family was forced to accept the new dark reality at hand. But they refused to accept the dark future described by doubtful doctors. So in the face of wrenching despair and horrifying odds, the Criglers made a resolution, “Jason will make a full recovery”.

And recovery, he did! Join us on July 28th to view this powerful film and plan on attending to our August 25th support group and meet Jason himself.
