Actress Tamala Jones Steps Up to Help Raise Awareness of Brain Aneurysms
Date:5/9/2013

Hanover, MA (PRWEB) May 09, 2013

Actress Tamala Jones plays the medical examiner Lanie Parish on ABC’s hit show Castle. Fans of the show may be surprised to learn that she is also a brain aneurysm survivor. Jones has recently agreed to work with The Brain Aneurysm Foundation to help raise awareness of the symptoms of brain aneurysms.

At the age of 23, Jones had a ruptured aneurysm. The aneurysm ruptured while she was at home and she was able to get to the hospital for treatment. In looking back, she realized that a headache that had lingered for two weeks might have been a symptom. Following the aneurysm, she also discovered a strong family history of brain aneurysms.

Now, fifteen years after the aneurysm, Jones is talking about what has happened and hoping to make a difference for others.

“For many years, I didn’t share my story because I didn’t want to show weakness or vulnerability, especially as I was trying to succeed as an actress,” said Jones. “After hearing many other stories of young people suffering from a brain aneurysm and dying, I wanted to tell my story. If I can help one person recognize the symptoms of a brain aneurysm and get help, it will have made a difference.”

Every year 27,000 people in the United States will suffer from a ruptured brain aneurysm. Over 40% of these individuals will die. Those that survive often face significant challenges, greatly impacting their lives and the lives of their families. The Brain Aneurysm Foundation is the nation’s only nonprofit organization solely dedicated to providing critical awareness, education, support and research funding to reduce the incidence of brain aneurysms.
