You may not know, but October is AVM awareness month.
Arteriovenous malformation (AVM), is an abnormal tangle of blood vessels connecting arteries and veins, which disrupts normal blood flow and circulation. It occurs in less than 1% of the population.
Cari's daughter, Maile, was diagnosed with a brain arteriovenous malformation 3 and a half years ago. There's a section of arteries and veins not formed properly near her motor strip. She does suffers from severe headaches that affects her vision and left limbs.
The Joe Niekro Support team has given Cari insight on how to cope with the potential dangers (aneurysm, stroke, hemorrhage) that Maile faces daily. She is working on setting up local support groups out here in Hawaii.
I invite you to show your support by visiting @UFCgymWaikele 's FB group page to make a donation.
Cari will be doing a kettlebell swing on October 29th for every $1 donated.
Thanks again for all of your support!
