Arie is 11 years old and another Yakes patient that I just recently got in touch with through her mom Jody. What a beautiful little girl who is doing so well dealing with this AVM! Like mine, Aire's AVM is facial, with it fairly localized in her lip. She has been through nine trips to Dr. Yakes and is doing well. Please visit her mom's first blog postings at AVM Survivors Network to read about her story and continued treatments.
