support for hydrocephalus
The Hydrocephalus Association continues its 30th anniversary history series with an interview with our Long Island WALK Chair, Mia Padron. Mia is determined to raise awareness for hydrocephalus, and it doesn’t stop with leading a WALK. New York celebrates Hydrocephalus Awareness Month because of this woman.
One of the ways Hydrocephalus Association provides direct support to individuals who have been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, as well as to their family, friends and caregivers, is through our local support groups. This past year, we launched 8 new support groups and hosted 77 meetings in 25 states. In addition, we initiated numerous closed groups on Facebook that provide a space for individuals to connect, share information give and receive support 24/7.
