Orange County WALK to End Hydrocephalus 2019

MIRIAM'S TEAM: WE GOT THIS!

Welcome to MIRIAM'S TEAM: We GOT THIS!


Please join my team and DONATE or WALK to End Hydrocephalus! This event is very dear to my heart. As you may know, 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 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 ME and support a cure for the over one million individuals like me living with hydrocephalus.

Thank you,
Miriam
