I have hydrocephalus I got diagnosed when I was 7 & had my first shunt placed when I was 8. I wanna make a difference I wanna change the world to make it a better place for people who those who are unable to take care of themselves.
I was diagnosed in Dubai with Hydrocephalus in Feb 2016 and had 3 surgeries in that year. Drs have no idea what caused it and have said they do not have the experience in Dubai.
I have worked in the Media for more than 20 years and my first reaction to my diagnosis was ‘How can I reach out to help others’ and raise awareness. I hope to return to my home country in the UK in the coming weeks. I would like to get involved with the Hydrocephalus Association and join you as an Ambassador.
In my case we have been left with more questions than answers about my diagnosis. I would like to do everything I can to help you.
Thank you for providing such helpful insights and sharing so many stories.
