New York dancer enjoys dancing again after receiving surgery to remove rare brain malformation

Alanna Chan, a 24-year-old professional dancer, suffered from consistent migraines on the right side of her head. Doctors diagnosed an arteriovenous malformation (AVM) in her brain that could have threatened her career and her life. The vascular lesion consists of an abnormal tangle of blood vessels connecting arteries and veins in the brain, disrupting proper blood flow in the brain. Ms. Chan opted for risky brain surgery and is now back to dancing again. CBS News
