Excess accumulation of fluid in the brain, putting pressure on the brain and sometimes causing brain damage or death.
Right now, over 1 million Americans are living with hydrocephalus. There is no cure. There is no way to prevent the condition or its development. The only treatment option patients have to manage hydrocephalus is brain surgery. Our national #NOMOREBS campaign aims to raise awareness and help improve the lives of every person living with hydrocephalus. We hope you will join us in our efforts to fund research into alternative treatments, means of prevention, and, ultimately, a cure. Brain surgery should not be our only treatment option. No More Brain Surgeries. #NOMOREBS
Roadmap to A Cure is the Hydrocephalus Association’s crucial initiative to accelerate critical research, expand patient support and education, and raise unprecedented public awareness about hydrocephalus. Join us on our journey to raise $20M by 2020.
