2012 Middlebury Connecticut Hydrocephalus Walk
The Hydrocephalus Association's mission is to eliminate the challenges of hydrocephalus by stimulating innovative research and providing support, education and advocacy for individuals, families and professionals dealing with hydrocephalus.
More than one million Americans live with the challenges of hydrocephalus every day. Anyone, at any time, may be diagnosed with hydrocephalus. The most common treatment method, surgically implanting a shunt in the brain, was developed in the 1950s but, unfortunately, there’s been little improvement since then. A shunt is NOT a cure!
With your help we work to ensure families have access to the most current educational materials, research and quality health care. We work to advocate for increased research funding to advance our understanding of hydrocephalus, improve diagnosis and treatment and ultimately, to find a cure.
