January 10, 2013 Reported in medjugorjetoday.tv and [here]. Elena Artioli’s type of brain disease never vanishes or decreases in size. But hers did after she went to Medjugorje. Her Italian specialist knows of no other cases in the world when this has happened. To Elena herself, her spiritual renewal is the greatest miracle and gift that she received.
Elena Artioli was born on January 19th 1982 in Ferrara, Italy. At age 16 she was diagnosed with the serious blood vessel disease AVM which does not vanish or shrink without treatment. Elena’s specialist would not perform a surgery. Instead she went to Medjugorje, and became the world’s first AVM patient whose AVM decreased without treatment. Cerebral arteriovenous malformation is just about as bad as it sounds. It is a blood vessel disease inside the brain whose size does not decrease, but only increases or remains the same size.The one exception from this in the world is Elena Artioli from Bologna, Italy. She became this exception after she went to Medjugorje. The Italian girl was 16 years old in 1998 when recurring eyesight problems led to her being diagnosed with cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM) in the rear left frontal region, 3 centimeters in dimension.
AVM is an abnormal connection between the arteries and veins in the brain. The most frequent AVM problems are headaches and seizures .Other common symptoms are a pulsing noise in the head, progressive weakness, numbness and vision changes as well as debilitating, excruciating pain. “From that moment, my life completely changed. I was living in fear, in anguish, in the unknowing, in sadness and in daily anxiety of that which could happen at any moment” Elena Artioli tells in her testimony at [Guarda Con Me], the blog of Medjugorje photographer Daniel Miot.
Expert gives hope, but no surgery
“He told me that at that time he would neither perform surgery nor carry out any type of therapy because it was an area too large and too thin to treat with radiosurgery. I could carry on with my life with as calmly as possible – however, I had to avoid any activities that could provoke an increase in cerebral pressure” Elena Artioli tells.
It had been more than four years since the now 29 years old Elena Artioli’s most recent medical check-up when she allowed a close friend and co-worker to persuade her to go to Medjugorje. Her friend had described the place as a destination of internal serenity and great peace.
“That was what I needed at that moment. And so, with a lot of curiosity and a little bit of skepticism, I left on August 2nd 2011 with my mother for Medjugorje’s Youth Festival” Elena Artioli tells.
“It was as if something “entered” inside you that you were not asking for. I prayed a lot but I was unable to ask for anything because I always thought that there were people that had precedence and priority compared to me…and compared to my problems” she says.
