Cynthia Burke

57 year-old Cynthia, from the Mid-North Coast of New South Wales, was a successful café owner and business woman for 25 years until suffering, without warning, a ruptured brain aneurysm in 2016 – a ‘heartbeat’ that changed her world 180 degrees. Her lived experience of the last four years has made her a passionate advocate for raising awareness of brain aneurysms and brain injury.
