Hello, I have been living in the town of Bussum for about two weeks now and enjoying myself immensely. The Dutch are wonderful people. :)

Beste Gerrie, ik ben blij weer een Nederlander hier te zien. Ik heb je aanvraag op Facebook geaccepteerd. Welkom in onze facebook groep AVM Netherlands

Goed initiatief.
Momenteel herstel ik (voorspoedig) van het verwijderen van een carverneuze malformatie in mijn linker temporaalkwab.
20 mrt ben ik in Maastricht geopereerd door dr. Dings.

I''m very happy: a big victory for the Dutch AVM & aneurysma community today. The Dutch Brain foundation has put up a link to our facebook page on his personal website !! Now people in the furture are able to find more support in difficult times.

Ik ben erg blij, vandaag is er een grote stap gezet voor de Nederlandse AVM & Aneurysma gemeenschap. De Hersenstichting heeft op hun website een link geplaatst naar onze facebook pagina ( AVM Netherlands ). Nou kunnen patiënten makkelijker hulp/steun vinden in toch moeilijkere tijden.

I want to thank the Dutch Brain Foundation/Hersenstichting for there support !!!!!!

Greetings Avm Dutch

Will try to give my story in a somewhat nut shelve:
In 1990, when I was 29 years old, I elected to have my AVM removed from my brain! I know it was very risky because it was a giant AVM, but so was the grand mal seizures that I was getting because of it. Altogether, I suffered 2 strokes during 7 brain surgeries!!! In the beginning,I was ½ paralyzed, all blinded, could not walk, talk and more!! It took years to recover, but the bottom line is that the Beings Up Above, and my Strength From Within, beat all of the odds, and this is a PRICELESS 2nd Life!! What a journey it was, and every single day is just a TRUE BLESSING that I have. I am a HAPPY CAMPER.

Dear Lisa, I'm very happy to hear this. Yes computers change a lot. we are now able to support each other. I'm now trying to get the whole Dutch speaking AVM community together. This is the first real dutch avm support group because i noticed to there was nothing out there. You can find my new group on facebook. It has the same name as here AVM Netherlands ofcourse everybody is welcome. Greetings AVM Dutch

I would like to find ALL AVM survivors, and today I found YOU, the AVM Netherlands! You see, in 1979, when I was 18 years old, I found out that I had an AVM. Back then, it was very, very difficult to find AVM people or AVM support groups. So, for about 15 YEARS, I knew NOONE who had an AVM, so I felt so, so alone, for way too long. HOWEVER, because of our computer world, and Ben's Friends, at least I do not feel so alone, AT ALL, anymore!!! ;-)
