Thanks for the update Stella and nice to hear the success with the AVM. He is facing some young man challenges for sure! Best of luck to him in finishing his schooling. Take Care, John.

Stella thanks for the positive and uplifting message. I’ve been on my AVM journey for almost 5 years. Things are going well, for me but I’m not to the finish line yet. Besides the doctor’s, P&P (Prayer & Patience) have been my go-to in dealing with all the things AVM related. Thanks for the update.
