Coast to Coast for Hydrocephalus
Todd Touchberry will spread awareness about hydrocephalus and his daughter's journey by driving his 103-year-old Ford Model T from South Carolina to California starting November 17th, 2023.
The Journey Begins November 17th, 2023
"Todd thought of the ultimate way to raise money for hydrocephalus while still showing our love and appreciation for old cars."
- Jennifer Touchberry
After purchasing two Ford Model-Ts, the Touchberry family discovered the history of people traveling coast to coast in Model-Ts over 100 years ago. They were inspired to do the same in the name of his daughter Elizabeth and to further hydrocephalus research.

Elizabeth's Touchberry's Story
Elizabeth was born with hydrocephalus. She has undergone 19 brain surgeries since birth, most occurring before she was 13 years old. Her father, Todd Touchberry, inspires her and those living with hydrocephalus.
"For some people to get rid of a headache, they just take Tylenol or any over-the-counter medications. For me, it really is brain surgery." - Liz Touchberry.
What is Hydrocephalus?
Hydrocephalus is a chronic, neurological condition caused by an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within cavities of the brain called ventricles, resulting in pressure on the brain.
It affects over 1 million Americans, ranging from infants and older children to young and middle-aged adults, as well as seniors.
There is currently no cure for hydrocephalus, but it can be treatable.
