She was my youngest daughter and had two brain surgeries, first an ETV followed by a shunt placement. She blossomed when the pressure was relieved in her head and was the love of my life. She passed ten days prior to her first birthday from other complications. I miss her terribly and would do anything to bring her back.
I’ve watched HA grow over the years, and I am encouraged to learn of the expanded focus to find a cure and discover better treatment options. I am committed to sharing Ellen’s story to help raise awareness of the great support services and work of the Hydrocephalus Association as well as to help raise funds to find better treatments for everyone living with hydrocephalus. Truly, no parent should ever have to bury their child. Through it all, I still feel connected to our community and grateful to HA.
I GIVE to memorialize my beloved angel and to give other children the bright future they deserve!
If you have not yet made a year-end gift to HA, I hope you will do so now. It is not too late. Together we will end hydrocephalus. To donate, please click here: MY HOLIDAY GIFT
To a brighter future and New Year filled with hope,
