Welcome to Team Remington!

Please join our team and WALK with us to End Hydrocephalus!  This event is very dear to our hearts as we are walking on behalf of our loved ones who are living with hydrocephalus and the constant fear that their shunt could fail at any moment. As you may know, 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 its consistent failures lead to multiple brain surgeries over a patient’s lifetime, in some cases 100 or more. This is unacceptable and this is WHY WE WALK. Please join our team, donate and help us reach our 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.

 

We will greatly appreciate any donation made to team Remington. I know the walk is not very close so many people cannot physicaly join us but a donation is just as good if not better! Most of you know that Remington has made is thru 3 brain surgeries in his short 6 years of life. We have been very thankful and very lucky that he is as healthy and functional as he is. Alot of people with hydrocephalus are not so lucky. We would very much love for there to be a better cure for his condtion as the shunt is no guarantee and can fail at any time. Thank you everyone!! We love you all so much and truly appreciate all the support we have gotten along this journey!!!   -Love, team Remington!!!
