Watch and Learn

Empower 2023 is our internationally broadcast event to empower individuals to take action toward finding a cure for cavernous malformations. The event will provide a unique opportunity for viewers to learn about the latest research, engage with the CCM community, and unite with others who share the same passion for finding a cure.

This live stream event is designed to be easy to watch from the comfort of your own home, making it accessible to anyone, anywhere. When you tune in, you'll gain the knowledge you need to make a difference in the CCM community and an opportunity to donate if you feel led.

Join us on July 29th for Empower 2023 and become part of the movement towards finding a cure.

Why Now?

You might be wondering, why now? Cavernous malformation lesions are abnormal blood vessels in the brain and spinal cord that resemble mulberries. They have thin walls causing them to be hemorrhage and cause stroke and seizure to people of any age, including children.

We’re poised at a threshold in cavernous malformation research. The drug pipeline is full of promising treatments that have worked well in academic laboratory settings. With your support, we can prioritize the medicines that should be pushed forward, attract more industry to our cause, and fund research directly. Through you, there will be at least one effective, approved treatment by 2025 and a CURE by 2030.

Funds from our virtual event will be used to accelerate a cure by supporting Alliance to Cure Cavernous Malformation’s many research and care initiatives, the development of additional Clinical Centers of Excellence, and patient education and support. We are saving lives and driving research toward a cure!
