TAAF - History

The Aneurysm Foundation (TAF) was established by the Kaitz family in 2003 in honor of family members who lived with, or died from, brain aneurysms. The Kaitz family was astonished by the lack of public awareness and under-support of research of such a widespread and often fatal condition. Through TAF the family launched a crusade to educate and encourage awareness about brain aneurysms.

In 2005 a group of medical professionals, survivors and caregivers briefly formed the Foundation for Brain Aneurysm and Vascular Malformations. The primary focus was to provide motivational and other educational resources to the patient and caregiver community, and to increase public awareness.

With similar visions and complementary goals, these foundations merged to expand The Aneurysm Foundation into the present day foundation now known as ‘The Aneurysm and AVM Foundation’ (TAAF).

Today TAAF focuses on public awareness, furthering research, and fostering a community of support for those affected by aneurysm and other types of vascular malformation of the brain.
