WAYNE, Pa. – The Bee Foundation, one of the region’s largest brain aneurysm awareness, research, and advocacy organizations, will host U.S. Congressman Patrick Meehan (PA-7) along with survivors and advocates on Friday to urge lawmakers to authorize more federal funding to combat brain aneurysms and provide resources to patients who have suffered aneurysms.
The Foundation will host the lawmaker and others at Cornerstone Restaurant in Wayne, Delaware County for a news conference to press for congressional passage of Ellie’s Law, H.R. 1648, introduced by Meehan last month.
The Bee Foundation was founded in 2014 by Cornerstone’s owner, Christine Kondra, along with her sister, Erin Kreszl, to honor their cousin, Jennifer Sedney, who died December 25, 2013, at the age of 27 from a ruptured brain aneurysm.
Ellie’s Law honors four women who passed away as a result of a brain aneurysm: 14-year-old Ellie Helton; WABC Eyewitness News reporter Lisa Colagrossi; Teresa Anne Lawrence, devoted mother of three; and 27-year-old Jennifer Sedney who passed away on Christmas Day in 2013.
Members of the media are invited to attend.
