Join us tonight with guest Todd Helton, father of three vibrant young girls. His oldest daughter is Ellie.

Ellie experienced repetitive headaches and ocular migraines but doctors were not sure of her actual diagnosis. Doctors began to go through a checklist of items while Todd did a lot of research on the fly.  Fortunately, the doctors at the University of North Carolina (UNC) Children’s Hospital, took the time we needed to discuss what was happening and the options for treatment at every step of the process.  But time was of the essence and her aneurysm ruptured. 

· An estimated 6.7 million people in the United States have an unruptured brain aneurysm or 1 in 50 people.  

- A brain aneurysm ruptures every 18 minutes.

Todd Helton, along with the Bee Foundation and The Brain Aneurysm Foundation is advocating for the passing of Ellie's Law/ H.R. 902 in congress, for more extensive cerebral aneurysm research. Join the show to hear more -
