MVE + Partners
Welcome to the MVE + Partners Friends and Family Page!
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. This is the reality that many families, including a member of the MVE team's family, lives every day while waiting for a cure for their loved ones.
No one should have to live like this. This is WHY WE WALK and also why we need your support. Please donate and help our team reach our goal. Your donation is greatly appreciated and will go far in helping find a cure and improving the lives of people living with hydrocephalus.
MVE + Partners is proud to be a sponsor for the Orange County WALK to End Hydrocephalus.
