Brain Aneurysm Awareness Month: Maria Chapa's story

Maria Chapa realized something was wrong when she started having a horrible headache.

She and her husband went to the nearest hospital in Brownsville, where an MRI confirmed she had an aneurysm. Because the doctors there were not equipped to treat her, they recommended that she visit University Health System.

“We were so glad we went to UHS,” Maria told us. “They had 11 people ready to assist us once we got here. Within seconds, the whole staff was ready.”

Both she and her husband spoke very highly of everyone there. They described the care she received as being prompt and attentive.

We are happy to report that Maria has fully recovered from her aneurysm and is back home in Brownsville.
