“I have enjoyed the atmosphere and the common interests while having the opportunity to meet others and learn about hydrocephalus and any changes in treatment or services”

“We came away from both conferences as better advocates for our child. Confident and educated, also emotionally energized! Thank you for all you do! Our son is 16 years old now and I feel like you’ve been a guiding light in our journey with Dandy-Walker syndrome (13 surgeries before age 6).”

    Hope you will perhaps present something addressing long term shunt, those who have had shunts from infancy and well into adulthood.

  2. Barbara Bosch says:

    This upcoming conference would it benefit adults with IIH with problematic VP shunt?

  3. Bonnie Poli says:

    Yes, would like to hear about the effects of long term shunt use. Also the effects of hydrocephalus on de elopement.

  4. Eugene Tridfan says:

    I would like to hear about hydrocephalus complications or related conditions (such as slit-ventricle syndrome, Chiari malformations, syringomielya, migraines, etc)

  5. andrew liebig says:

    Can you please tell me if you have any scholarships for the conference to help like first timers or any other help?

  6. Rosie Smith says:

    My son (41) has spina bifida with hydrocephalus and only 2 shunt ops 10 days and 11yrs. Very litle ongoing support or check ups since then either medically, educationally (non existent) or within workforce. Insufficient public awareness , understanding or even willingness to be informed. We need to work to raise profile of hydrocephalus just as autism/aspergers syndrome.
