Comedienne Lauren Miller Rogen learned she had an enlarging aneurysm growing in her head during a brain scan. Doctors found the bulge due to her family’s history of dementia that robbed her great-grandmother and mother’s memories.
Five years later, another MRI revealed the aneurysm actively expanding within Lauren’s brain. She consulted famous neurosurgeon Dr. Geoffrey Colby of UCLA who answered her questions about the impending surgery. She trusted his expertise to remove the threatening bulge.
Last spring, the bulging aneurysm began worsening inside Lauren’s brain. Dr. Colby and his team sprang into action, performing urgent brain surgery to extract the growth before harm occurred.
Praising the talented surgeon and hospital staff for their excellent care after the scary operation, Lauren jokingly thanked them for allowing her to avoid an early death. Their rapid response helped her continue entertaining audiences with her jokes.
