Just days after complaining of a bad headache a North Carolina mother-of-four has died.
Lee Broadway had a history of migraines, so her husband Eric wasn't immediately concerned when the 41-year-old woman said she was suffering from a terrible headache.
But little did they know this migraine wasn't an ordinary headache.
After being rushed to hospital they were shocked to find out that the pain she was feeling was actually something more serious.
She was diagnosed with a brain aneurysm, which is an abnormal weak spot on a blood vessel. If left untreated, it can rupture and cause a hemorrhage which can lead to death.
Lee later died from complications of surgery to remove the brain aneurysm.
She leaves behind 22-year-old Adair, 16-year-old Averi, 10-year-old Alex and 8-year-old Adrien.
'She was sweet and kind and she always was there for me,' Adrien said.
An estimated 500,000 people globally die each year from brain aneurysms and half of the victims are younger than 50. An estimated 1 in 50 people in the United States will develop a brain aneurysm during their lifetime.
