AVM Stories - Paige

January 8,2018 started as a normal crazy morning at the Keelys. Loud music in the morning,crazy animals running all over and getting my 3 Kiddos ready for school.

Breakfast served, snacks & lunches packed and Paiges adorable crazy outfit were ready for the day. Kisses goodbye, I love you have the best day… They were off to school.

A few short hours later I got the call from the nurse, Paige is here,she’s crying her head hurts & she vomited.

About 1 min after that phone call came another phone call.  Mrs.Keely, Paige is unresponsive. We have an ambulance coming. I arrived to school in minutes and our NIGHTMARE began.

Paige was taken from us a few hours later from an unknown brain arteriovenous malformation (AVM). We were told she was born with this. The type and location of her AVM was a ticking time bomb.  If it was to burst (like it did) there would only have been a few min to try and save her.

Paiges family has set up a 501(c)3 non profit, in honor of their beautiful daughter. Their mission at the Paige Keely Foundation is to raise money for AVM awareness, fight for early detection and provide support to AVM survivors. No family should have to go through the pain of losing a child when detection could have kept Paige alive.
