TEAM OC NPH
Welcome to Our Page for TEAM OC NPH
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 friends and loved ones who living with hydrocephalus. Our TEAM is specifically focused on the most common cause of ADULT HYDROCEPAHLUS-NORMAL PRESSURE HYDROCEPHALUS (NPH). There are nearly 700,000 people in the U.S. with this, and the common symptoms are dementia, trouble walking, and bladder control problems. It is frequently misdiagnosed as Alzheimer's. This can be very effectively treated with a shunt which is brain surgery to implant a medical device called a shunt. WE WALK to help build awareness of NPH. We WALK to improve our understanding and treatment paradigms for NPH. 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.
Thank you! Jeff Chen
