TRINITY LOVE HOBLIT FOUNDATION
September is Brain Aneurysm Awareness Month and Mocktails are delighted to be supporting the Trinity Love Hoblit Foundation with continuing its mission to raise awareness about the signs and symptoms of brain aneurysm. According to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation, each year, brain aneurysms cause nearly 500,000 deaths worldwide.
The Trinity Love Hoblit Foundation, founded in 2016, is a non-profit organisation located in Florida. They are dedicated to raising awareness about the signs and symptoms of brain aneurysm. The organisation also provides support and funding for neuroscience research for brain aneurysm with the goal of advancing treatment options and reducing the time between treatment and signs/symptoms to ensure better outcomes for those suffering a brain aneurysm.
Every 18 minutes, a brain aneurysm ruptures. And when it does, death or lifelong disabilities often result. “A ruptured brain aneurysm is a medical emergency that requires immediate treatment,” said Olivia Hoblit, director of the Trinity Love Hoblit Foundation in Fernandina Beach, Florida. “The accurate and early diagnosis of a ruptured brain aneurysm can greatly affect outcomes. Thanks to medical advancements, treatment for brain aneurysms is more promising today than it was just a few years ago.”
Survivors of a ruptured brain aneurysm often experience what they describe as “the worst headache ever.” A sudden, severe headache is a common warning sign that someone may be suffering a ruptured brain aneurysm. Other signs include dilated pupils, blurred vision, pain behind the eye, weakness and numbness, and difficulty speaking.
Reducing the time between signs and symptoms and treatment saves lives and improves outcomes.
Mocktails will be present and serving up great non alcoholic cocktails at the annual fundraising gala being held on Saturday 17th September at the Courtyard by Marriott, Amelia Island. We look forward to supporting the foundation later this month and developing our partnership further.
