The Hydrocephalus Association Fresno which has been in Fresno for many years is having an awareness day on October 14th at Woodward Park. Here, you’ll find professional representatives who give fantastic information on this condition and also note Children’s Hospital Central California as the closest place for care. These walks each year bring together hundreds from our large valley community including most of the neurosurgery department at Valley Children’s, and really provides great resources to our families here who have a child with hydrocephalus.
Hydrocephalus is a problem with the flow of the fluid that surrounds the brain. This fluid is called the cerebrospinal fluid, or CSF. It surrounds the brain and spinal cord, and helps cushion the brain.
