In 2010, Froggy was diagnosed with a rare, chronic disease called Acromegaly which he continues to live with today. In 2020 he developed a brain aneurysm and had surgery to have it clipped. Froggy does all he can to advocate for acromegaly and brain aneurysms throughout the year.
ABOUT THE BRAIN ANEURSYM FOUNDATION:
The Brain Aneurysm Foundation was established in Boston in 1994 as a public charity.

The Brain Aneurysm Foundation is now the globally recognized leader in brain aneurysm awareness, education, support, advocacy, and research funding.
Their mission is to provide information about and raise awareness of the symptoms and risk factors of brain aneurysms to prevent ruptures and subsequent death and disability. To work with medical communities to provide support networks for patients and families and advance research to improve patients’ outcomes and save lives.
