Hi Corinne thanks for wanting to help as I have so often seen in your threads/posts with others. To update you I am a 46 year old British male born with high-flow avm on right side of face and have been on a frustrating year long journey with Dr. Waner and his team and more recently Dr Berenstein and his team trying to arrange and begin treatment. AVM founder Linda and Dr Berenstein team member Mary Madrid have both been brilliant. Sorry only looking for cheek/lip area. Take care and respect to the work you do Corinne
