The Knuckle Ball…A Pitch for Life is Heading to Phoenix

As some of you may know, my daughter Chloe was born in January 2014 with a Vein Of Galen Malformation (VOGM), which is an extremely rare type of AVM. Over the past 18 months she has gone through 6 brain embolizations. Her first two taking place at one and two-day old and the last one being in December 2014.
