Mary Brewer recently reached out to The Bee Foundation to share the story of her daughter, Mallory Brewer, and the wonderful life she lived that was ended too soon by a ruptured brain aneurysm. Read on to learn more about Mallory Brewer and what you can do to support brain aneurysm research and awareness, as well as honor Mallory’s memory.
“On August 25, 2016, I said goodbye to one of the most humble and kind young girls who had everything going for her. She was a 2011 graduate of the University of Pittsburgh with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and had just received her MBA from Katz School of Business in April 2016. Mallory too was taken from us too early. At the age of 27, Mallory Rae Brewer suffered a fatal brain aneurysm that burst with no warning signs. Mallory was a gymnast at the University of Pittsburgh where she competed all four years of her undergraduate career, from 2007 to 2011. She “flipped” through life and really made an impact on everyone she met. She was strong and fearless.”
Friday would have been her 28th birthday, and to remember Mallory and celebrate her life, her mother is posting on Facebook to ask all of her friends to post a picture of them doing a handstand – something she loved to do – and for every post she would like to donate to The Bee Foundation in support of brain aneurysm awareness and research in her honor.
Mallory’s favorite saying is “Never be less than your dreams.” She loved country music and talking selfies, but more importantly she loved people. To keep her legacy alive, show your support by posting your headstand picture and tagging @TheBeeFoundation and #headstandformallory on June 16th, 2017.
