Help us support our neighbor Gemma (Freya's buddy) in the Hydrocephalus Foundation Walk in Baltimore
Our 6-year old friend Gemma has Hydrocephalus and we would like to help raise funds for the Hydrocephalus Association to fund research to improve the lives of people with this disorder. Gemma lives down the block, and she and Freya-the-dog are great buddies. She has two awesome older sisters who keep her on her toes. Gemma is full of life, loves the Beatles, and is the unofficial mayor of Hummingbird Court. Scott, Freya, and I will be walking again this year in the September 21, 2019 Baltimore Hydrocephalus Walk. The path is along the inner harbor and great fun.
Please consider helping us raise funds for Gemma and Team G-Force, and/or join us for the walk and meet some amazing people.

Here is some info on hydrocephalus: Hydrocephalus is a life altering, life threatening condition, caused by an abnormal accumulation of cerebral spinal fluid, resulting in pressure on the brain. The most common treatment for this condition is brain surgery to implant a medical device called a shunt, which has a 50% failure rate in children within the first two years. A shunt is not a cure as many patients endure multiple brain surgeries throughout their lifetime, some more than 100. Imagine life knowing that the next brain surgery lurks around the corner because your shunt could fail at any moment.
