Hydrocephalus and You
Contrary to popular belief anyone can get hydrocephalus at any age. Hydrocephalus does not discriminate and there is no cure. 1 to 2 of every 1,000 babies are born with hydrocephalus. It is the most common reason for brain surgery among children. An estimated 5% of Alzheimer’s patients have misdiagnosed hydrocephalus. 1 shunt surgery takes place every 15 minutes. 50% of shunts fail within 2 years.
HA’s mission is to eliminate the challenges of hydrocephalus by stimulating innovative research and providing support and education for individuals, families and professionals dealing with the condition.
Thank you for supporting Hydrocephalus Association Salt Lake City, UT WALK. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
