Welcome to the Team LilliePad Page!
Calling all Team LilliePad friends and famiy...with so much to be thankful for this year, we are so happy to be able to come together and give back to a great cause that is dear to our hearts. Please join our team and WALK with us to End Hydrocephalus! We are celebrating lil ones like our Lillie who are living with hydrocephalus. 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.
