Over 1 million people are living with hydrocephalus, a complex, life-threatening condition marked by excess accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid on the brain. There is no way to prevent hydrocephalus and there is no cure. The only known treatment requires brain surgery.
In this time of uncertainty, there’s a fundamental truth that gives us hope – that together we can do extraordinary things. Join us this September to raise awareness for hydrocephalus!
