The Jamie Beck Family Foundation

The Jamie Beck Family Foundation was named in honor of Jamie Beck who passed away in 2015 as a result of a ruptured brain aneurysm. While this was a tragic loss, we are determined to create a positive experience from this event by supporting patients and their families impacted by brain aneurysms.

Description

Since its formation, the Foundation has coordinated with the University of Colorado Hospital (UCH), working with Dr. Joshua Seinfeld and his team of doctors, to not only provide financial assistance to impacted families, but educate and promote public awareness of brain aneurysms and their short and long term effects. The Jamie Beck Family Foundation provides direct financial assistance to brain aneurysm patients and their families who have been vetted for need by UCH. (However, the Foundation also provides direct financial assistance to additional patients and their families through our Foundation website, as well as other patient referrals.)
