Orange County WALK to End Hydrocephalus 2019

The Orange Crew

Welcome to Our Team Page!

We are The Orange Crew

- as in, Orange you so happy we're walking to END HYDROCEPHALUS?

Because we are!

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 Eva, our niece, cousin, friend who is living with hydrocephalus and the constant fear that her shunt could fail at any moment. 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 our team or donate (or both!) 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 Eva and everyone living with hydrocephalus. 

Thank you!
