Natalie Niekro

Guest Speaker - Natalie Niekro

Natalie Niekro is the founder of The Joe Niekro Foundation,  an organization committed to supporting patients and families, research, treatment and awareness of brain aneurysms, AVMs and Hemorrhagic strokes. Her passion for the cause began when she unexpectedly lost her father, Joe Niekro, to a ruptured brain aneurysm in 2006. It was then that she knew she had to do something to bring awareness to this devastating condition and other cerebral disorders and help patients and families who were struggling just as she was. An independent successful entrepreneur of two companies, Natalie made the decision to start another venture…one that would soon change her life forever. This was the beginning to the greatest endeavor of her life. Since inception, The Joe Niekro Foundation has raised over 4 million dollars in support of brain aneurysm, AVM and hemorrhagic stroke research and awareness. Keeping her father’s legacy alive is part of the magic that makes this foundation not only successful, but undeniably unique. With a nationwide support network of nearly 20,000 survivors, families and caregivers, and alignments with some of the greatest doctors and hospitals in the country, The Joe Niekro Foundation is leading the way for groundbreaking discoveries in neurological research, while providing a safe haven for patients and their families in their recovery.  Lean more about Natalie and here her story at the Red Dress Fashion Show!
