Hi everyone! I am Evrhiana Anoya. I just turned 7 last April 12. When I was a year and 3 months old, I underwent surgery because I was diagnosed with nasal deformity and status post hydrocephalus. 2 years after, 2015, I, once again, underwent an operation.
It has been four (4) years since my last operation. And today, I am knocking in your hearts to help my parents raise money for me to undergo another operation. Helping one person may not change the world, but it could change the world for one person. Thank you in advance may God bless you a million fold.
Hydrocephalus is the buildup of fluid in the cavities (ventricles) deep within the brain. The excess fluid increases the size of the ventricles and puts pressure on the brain.
Cerebrospinal fluid normally flows through the ventricles and bathes the brain and spinal column. But the pressure of too much cerebrospinal fluid associated with hydrocephalus can damage brain tissues and cause a range of impairments in brain function.
Hydrocephalus can happen at any age, but it occurs more frequently among infants and adults 60 and over. Surgical treatment for hydrocephalus can restore and maintain normal cerebrospinal fluid levels in the brain. Many different therapies are often required to manage symptoms or functional impairments resulting from hydrocephalus.
