Jeremy Obata was born with a rare genetic disorder that didn’t manifest until he was in high school. He lost his ability to speak. He was diagnosed at Emory with Pank 2, which causes iron to build up in the brain. What would you do if you found out you had an aneurysm in your brain? We followed a neurosurgeon as he sees 5 different people who’ve just found out they have aneurysms.
