MISSION STATEMENT. Our mission to inform, support, and empower individuals affected by cerebral cavernous angioma and drive research for a cure.
The Baca Family Historical Project has three AIMS:
AIM1: community outreach and engagement in rural/frontier New Mexico to increase awareness of cerebral cavernous malformations, specifically the CCM1 gene known as the Common Hispanic Mutation utilizing CBPR..
AIM2: to develop regional support groups for individuals and families who have inherited the CCM1 gene and introducing family members to each other and building identity as Baca family members.
AIM3: is to increase awareness of the CCM1 gene to healthcare professionals in rural/frontier New Mexico by providing lectures online or in person and reviewing the latest medical guidelines on the treatment of CCM1.
We are having positive results reaching out to rural/frontier communities and increasing awareness on cerebral cavernous malformations and providing information and referrals for those individuals who may be at high risk for CCM1.
