  • You probably won't find anyone else on this website. There are websites for people with rare diseases and for children with rare diseses. You might try these websites and discussion boards. My children have a rare blood disorder and I answer questions from other parents with children with the disorder for an organization.

  • I have never heard of your childs disease. It sounds like your baby is very sick. Is there a treatment or cure?

  • Look at www.angioma.org or become a member of the charity www.cavernoma.org.uk. PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a rare condition. Depending which study you look at, cavernous angiomas are as common as 1 in 200 or, asymptomatically, 1 in 600.
