When you are affected by hydrocephalus, sometimes the challenges can be overwhelming. You might have asked these very questions yourself: How do I find a doctor I can trust? What are my treatment options? What are the risks involved with shunt surgery? What are the symptoms of a shunt malfunction? Where can I find emotional support?
Every day, people contact the Hydrocephalus Association to find answers and connect with others who can help them manage the ups and downs of living with hydrocephalus. Thanks to your past support, we update our website with the latest information available… we sponsor national conferences … we compile physician directories … we collect medical articles for the resource library… we answer a toll-free phone and email hotline … and so much more. We need your continued support to meet the growing demands for our services. As Debby Buffa (pictured above with daughters) recently shared about raising two daughters with hydrocephalus, “Doctors and nurses simply don’t have the time to sit and hold your hand through it all. That’s why the Hydrocephalus Association is so important. You can’t get that kind of information and support anywhere else.”
