Here is the first picture of Rhema only an hour after her birth.

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.
