SALT LAKE CITY (News4Utah)- Have you ever heard of the condition hydrocephalus?
Hydrocephalus comes from the Greek words hydro meaning water and cephalus meaning head.
Hydrocephalus is an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within cavities in the brain.
Statistically, for every 1,000 babies born in this country, one to two will have hydrocephalus. It’s the most common reason for brain surgery in children but the Hydrocephalus Association wants to change that.
They are standing up to say “No More Brain Surgeries” ( #NoMoreBS).
Their goal is to raise awareness about the need for more research into additional treatment options and a cure for hydrocephalus.
On Saturday, September 22nd you can join in on their efforts during the Hydrocephalus Association WALK in Murray Park.
