Elle’s Angels Atlanta was created in honor of Elleanor Wilson, who survived a pontine hemorrhage in August 2013, when she was just 4 years old. Following newly available genetic testing, Elle was recently diagnosed with CCM3, the most aggressive form of this cerebrovascular disease. Her family founded the organization as a means of generating financial support directed towards research and a cure.
The sole purpose of Elle’s Angels Atlanta is to provide financial support to the experts and innovators advancing research in the field of brain health. Beneficiaries include two leaders in the worldwide effort to repair and restore brain function, and to accelerate a cure for cerebrovascular malformations.
