Medical History Aneurysms

Recently it has come to our attention that many Sias woman have been diagnosed with Cerebral Aneurysms. Especially those from Louisa Hunter and James Sias's line. I believe we now have 11 of us, all female that have positive diagnosis, with three more getting MRA's at this time to evaluate Headaches. I am a Nurse who has been recently diagnosed with a Giant Aneurysm (over 3 cm) and only had an annoying head pain. I am now involved with Wayne University to help find the genetic marker for this disease, it is free they just need large family pools that have the diagnosis to make finding the marker that much easier. Feel free to email me with any questions, but please get checked if you are a Sias of this line and have Headaches, it may save your life! I am one of the Lucky ones, and I am young to have had this happen.
