Hi, Is there a spinal AVM group for Canada?
I live in Northern Ontario
McGill University in Quebec or Dr Fawaz from The Moncton Hospital (New Brunswick).
Sorry to hear of your problems. I have only positive things to say regarding Toronto Western hospital and their treatment of my peripheral AVM. I know that they are the best solution for you. Your doctor should be aware of their existence and, if not, should be able to look it up for you. Best of luck and Prayers to you!

Everyone asks how I'm feeling all the time. I tell them "I'm good. I feel like my body is back to normal."
My physical body feels fine despite my active AVM. My emotional, mental, and spiritual body has been to hell and back.
