Arteriovenous Malformation or AVM is one of the rarest vascular anomalies in the world. AVMs are tangles of abnormally connected veins and arteries found primarily in the brain, head, neck and spine. Without the decelerating effect of capillaries, blood flows from the arteries with intense pressure, excessively and rapidly entering the veins. Because veins are not designed to take this amount of pressure, the vessels expand, invading and destroying any tissues or organs in the way. If left untreated, AVMs cause a range of health problems including facial disfigurement and paralysis, seizures, external and internal bleeding, blood clots and, in the most severe cases, death.
This is the story of anyone who has battled almost insurmountable odds
in order to not only live but have life abundantly.
This is a story for everyone who has stood on life's floor of fears, doubts
and struggles and decided to dance anyway.
If you know that the number of your triumphs will always be
more than the number of your challenges.
If you know that God's purpose for your life is always
more than what other people see when they look at you.
Then, this is your story too!
