Vascular malformations—what are they?
Instead of forming neat tubes, the blood and lymph vessels develop into twisted webs that collect fluid, forming large cysts. These masses are non-malignant but deforming, and they compress the normal anatomy around them. The main treatment is surgery, which frequently harms the healthy tissue as much as it helps remove the malformation.

The Hyman-Newman Institute for
Neurology and Neurosurgery
Under the direction of Dr. Alejandro Berenstein at Roosevelt Hospital in New York City, the Hyman-Newman Institute for Neurology and Neurosurgery (INN) is a leader in development and application of new treatments for these vascular diseases. The team's innovative non-surgical techniques have dramatic results. These techniques, combined with the team's pediatric focus and wonderful care, attract patients from all over the country and the world.
Support One Family
These new techniques are exciting, but access is limited to families who can afford to travel to New York City and have excellent medical coverage. Support One Family is a fund within the not-for-profit St Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital. Money raised by SOF helps cover the astronomical costs of getting these children and their families to treatment in New York, including travel, lodging, meals, and medical costs.
