Brain Aid- Exhibition Opening


That's right amigos, next Wednesday September 26, we're holding the first Brain Aid - life as we know it, art exhibition. Thanks to Community Hart, Black Coffee Lyrics, and This Is A Plain Tee (Cubic Collective) for helping to support and guide Brain Aid, but most importantly to the talented individuals whom have demonstrated interest into this unique project. As Brain Aid was inspired by David Montoya, a very creative and passionate individual, this event will be a celebration to the many creative folk out there doing what they love to do, make art! And we look forward to sharing this special evening with you all!

To make this even more special, contributions and donations raised through Brain Aid will be directed to Scott Trevelyan- Willowbank Studio. Scott is an ABI survivor himself and has established a space to support other people with brain injuries through art therapy, by facilitating workshops free of charge.  Have a look at his website for his full story and artwork scott-trevelyan.com Thank you Scott.
Much Love

  1. Hey! You have such an interesting and informative page. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about brain tumor support groups. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about brain tumor support group in your area. Keep it up! This is a good read.
    The symptoms are true for ALL types of neoplasm of the brain (including secondary tumors). It is common that a person carry a primary benign neoplasm for several years and have no visible symptoms at all. Many present some vague and intermittent symptoms like headaches and occasional vomiting or weariness, which can be easily mistaken for gastritis or gastroenteritis. It might seem strange that despite having a mass in his skull exercising pressure on the brain the patient feels no pain, but as anyone who has suffered a concussion can attest, pain is felt on the outside of the skull and not in the brain itself. The brain has no nerve sensors in the meninges (outer surface) with which to feel or transmit pain to the brain's pain center; it cannot signal pain without a sensory input. That is why secondary symptoms like those described above should alert doctors to the possible diagnosis of a neoplasm of the brain.
    Please feel free to suggest other resources that we should consider adding to this list by contacting brain tumor support groups
