At that time, we had no idea what Spina Bifida was, much less Hydrocephalus– her secondary diagnosis.
Rhema is now 2 years old; she has had 3 brain surgeries and is on her 3rd shunt device.
50% of shunted individuals require a revising operation within two years.
About 40,000 shunt-related operations are performed every year in the US for hydrocephalus—
that averages out to one every 13 minutes and over 100 every day.
Shunt operations for hydrocephalus cost over $1 billion a year in the US.
