WHAT IS AN AVM:
An arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is a "tangle" of abnormal arteries and veins causing them to bypass the capillary system. While many AVMs are asymptomatic, they can cause intense pain or bleeding or lead to other serious medical problems such as neurological issues, seizures, aneurysm and stroke.

ABOUT THE JOE NIEKRO FOUNDATION:
The Joe Niekro Foundation (JNF) was established in 2008 and is the “brain child” of Natalie Niekro (daughter of Joe). Joe Niekro was a twenty-two year veteran of professional baseball who suddenly lost his life from a cerebral brain aneurysm in October 2006. The foundation is committed to supporting patients and families, research, treatment and awareness of Brain Aneurysms, AVMs and Hemorrhagic Strokes.
