About Soulsisters

Michelle and Lisa met after Michelle was featured in the Basingstoke Gazette, following near death, caused by a ruptured Brain Aneurysm in January 2016.

Lisa had lost her Mum to the same condition in June 2012 and wanted to reach out to tell Michelle, she was not alone and she understood the challenges she must be facing.

Since then Michelle and Lisa have become the best of friends and are campaigning to raise more awareness about Subarachnoid Haemorrhage and Brain Aneurysms so that more lives can be saved.

Please watch Michelle and Lisa’s video to discover more about their Story and please sign the Petition to introduce a Brain Aneurysm Awareness Day, to help save more lives.

Please also the Soulsisters Just Giving Page to donate and help raise important funds for Research into Subarachnoid Haemorrhage and Brain Aneurysms for Southampton University Hospital, where both Michelle and Lisa’s Mum were treated.

  1. I do think there needs to more awareness raised within the gp community. I had mine in 86. For years prior to the bleed mum took me back and forward to my gp and got sent away again. Even on mothers day 1986 when I woke up paralysed my gp said I was just putting it on to get attention. I was 12 for heavens sake! Good luck with this and your continued recovery michelle and well done to you both for raising awareness


    1. Lovely to hear from you Lisa. It’s funny you should say that because a few people I have heard from also got told they were ‘putting it on’. We are really wanting to share our own personal experiences in the hope of people being better informed on the signs and symptoms. Thank you so much for sharing your story with us.


  2. I too think there is more awareness needed just like the stroke but SAH is sometimes harder to detect.

    Like Lisa I was back and forward to the docs they sent me to get my eyes tested neither knew.

    Anyway I collapsed on 1st November 1999 and life has never been the same again, but in many ways it was a good thing I became stronger person because of it.

    Good luck with everything, well done
