this is a group picture of the detroit michigan hydrocephalus support groupHydrocephalus Association Support Groups are off to a great start this year.  Each week, we are receiving calls or e-mails from enthusiastic, driven individuals determined to help others who are dealing with the challenges of hydrocephalus.

Every child, adolescent, adult and family member has a different story but there are two common threads: Awareness and support are critical.  In order to eliminate the challenges of hydrocephalus, we must strive to make hydrocephalus a household word; and by connecting with each other in groups, we can share and support one another allowing us to deal with shared concerns.

The hydrocephalus community and the HA staff would like to welcome the latest members to our support Partners community:   Danielle Netherton  in Chico, CA, This is a picture of Dr. Hugh Garton - Pediatric neurosurgeon from  U of M Children's hospital Jennifer Bulthuis in Minneapolis, MN, Annie Mason in Richmond, VA, Chevis Shannon in Birmingham, AL and Sandra Frazier in Washington, D.C..

And once again we would like to extend our profound gratitude to our partners for all their selfless dedication, time and effort.
