Welcome to our Team Page!
Please join our team and WALK with us to end hydrocephalus. This event is very dear to our hearts as we are walking on behalf of those who are living with hydrocephalus and the constant fear that another brain surgery is around the corner. As you may know, hydrocephalus is a life-altering, life-threatening condition, caused by an abnormal accumulation of cerebral spinal fluid (CSF), resulting in pressure on the brain. The most common treatment for this condition is brain surgery to implant a medical device called a shunt. Sadly, a shunt is not a cure, as device failures are very common and lead to multiple brain surgeries over a patient’s lifetime, in some cases 100 or more. This is unacceptable and this is WHY WE WALK.
Join our team in person, join virtually and donate to help us reach our goal. Your donation is greatly appreciated and will go far in helping us find a cure and improve the lives of people living with hydrocephalus.
