In honor of Carmen Bice: A walk to end Hydrocephalus
Join me as I walk with Carmen's Angel Fund to End Hydrocephalus!
I walk to support my friends Brian and Melissa Bice, who tragically lost their daughter Carmen, who would have turned eight years old this year, due to complications from hydrocephalus in February.
Hydrocephalus is a life altering, life threatening condition, caused by an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal 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. No one should have to live like this. This is why I walk and also why I need your support. Please donate and help me reach my goal. Your donation is greatly appreciated and will go far in helping us find a cure and improve the lives of people living with hydrocephalus.
