Our Story

The sudden loss of Jennifer Sedney to a ruptured brain aneurysm at the age of 27 sparked an outpouring of support and disbelief of the lack of resources dedicated to preventing brain aneurysms….and thus The Bee Foundation was born. Fostering a vibrant research community, establishing trusted donor relationships, and cultivating a network of affected families, the Bee Foundation has evolved into a global community dedicated to our cause.

A DECADE OF PROGRESS

The Bee Foundation for Brain Aneurysm Prevention was founded in 2014 with the singular focus of preventing brain aneurysms before they rupture.  Research, Awareness,  Advocacy and Support have been the driving forces and this has been made possible due to the strength of our community.
