About Cavernoma and Cavernoma Alliance UK
A Cavernoma is a lesion, predominantly found in the brain or spine, which is made up of abnormal blood vessels. When these leak (bleed), they can cause stroke, seizures, surrounding brain/spine tissue damage, and even death.
Approximately 1 in 600 people are affected by this condition without even knowing about it. However, those with symptomatic cavernomas are rare. It’s estimated that 1 in 200,000 people are diagnosed with a symptomatic cavernoma every year, due to suffering from a stroke, seizure, or other neurological problems. Cavernomas can also be genetic, and therefore CAUK supports many children and young people with the condition – many of them with multiple cavernomas.
Cavernoma Alliance UK (CAUK) was founded in 2005 for those concerned their diagnosis or the diagnosis of a loved one failed to provide sufficient information about the condition. CAUK aims to address this lack of information by spreading awareness through its UK-wide CaverHubs (where clinicians talk directly to members), CaverBuddies (peer support), CaverCentres (local informal meetings), a CaverLine (for providing guidance, not medical information) and a Forum – CAUK’s flagship event where international clinicians update members on the latest developments in cavernoma.
The art sale, which has been organised by a small team of volunteers, aims to raise funds to support the cavernoma community through research and awareness raising, while also making art accessible to everyone – with each piece listed at only £75!
