Meet the Team

Rebecca Middleton, Chief Executive Officer

HBA Support was set up in 2020 by  Rebecca and Emma Middleton. After losing their mum and grandmother to brain aneurysms, Rebecca went through her own battle for diagnosis and subsequent treatment for a right MCA brain aneurysm.

Discovering the lack of balanced and accessible information available, Rebecca founded HBA Support to improve the situation for future patients and their families.

David Salmon, Community and Marketing Manager

David is HBA Support's Community and Marketing Manager. David is an expert in his field, having spent more than ten years working in the charity sector. Prior to joining HBA Support, David ran communications and marketing campaigns for the likes of Parkinson's UK and Volunteering Matters. He brings to the role a passion for putting communities at the heart of any organisation, together with a fundamental belief that not-for-profits should act as collaborators to blur the lines between beneficiaries, supporters and partners. 

David works to ensure that the future of HBA Support is shaped and defined by its community. He builds opportunities for collaboration between stakeholders, clinicians, patients and the wider industry, building engagement to ensure the organisation is able to deliver on its vision of providing much-needed advice and support for those affected by Hereditary Brain Aneurysms.

David works closely with Rebecca and the senior management team.

Catherine Farmer, Copywriter and content  consultant

Cathy is a communications consultant and copywriter who has worked for large and small companies across multiple sectors for the past twenty years. She helps the team at HBA Support write compelling blogs, articles and more, helping people understand who we are and what we do.

What is the current research for Hereditary Brain Aneurysms?

This TLR is the first step in changing the landscape for support and information for families with this rare, hereditary condition. We hope the overview proves useful for the patient, research and clinical communities. Through this knowledge and collaboration, we hope to open doors for better dialogue, more research and greater support for the families impacted by this potentially devastating condition.
