“Here is a young man with no inkling of having anything medically wrong with him; then, one day he suddenly has a devastating event,” Dr. Puente continues. “Through the power of good medical care and the right attitude, because of the support of his family and the professionals caring for him, he has been able to face this problem and is conquering it.”

During the third quarter of a New Orleans Hornets  basketball game, young Blake Bianchini felt his father slumping against his shoulder. At first the nine-yearold thought his dad was play-acting, but when Ray Bianchini wouldn’t wake up, he realized something was seriously wrong.

As he later found out, Ray Bianchini had lived his entire life with a deadly brain condition called arteriovenous malformation, or AVM. Only two months after his near-fatal crisis in the New Orleans Arena and determined to prove that he had conquered his illness, Ray Bianchini attended another Hornets basketball game.

“I feel so lucky to be alive that I want to educate others on the symptoms of aneurysms so they can get the lifesaving care they need,” Rebecca said.

Rebecca Winchell is lucky to be alive. The 45-year old  mother of seven suffered a potentially deadly brain hemorrhage as a result of an aneurysm in 2009. She was rushed to the care of interventional neuroradiologist Robert Dawson, M.D. at Culicchia Neurological Clinic in New Orleans, who diagnosed an aneurysm.

Dr. Dawson used a state-of-the-art technique to repair the aneurysm without surgery using a micro-catheter threaded all the way to the site in her brain. Ten days later, Rebecca was back home with her family.
