National Hydrocephalus Awareness Month, 2010, changing the “culture of despair”
Has it really been a year since parents Kim and Michael Illions initiated a national awareness campaign for pediatric hydrocephalus? Through the Pediatric Hydrocephalus Foundation, which they founded and direct, support chapters have been developed in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and as more and more parents come aboard, so too will more and more support opportunities for families dealing with congenital or pediatric hydrocephalus. Kudos to Kim and Michael who are really making a difference not only for their own son, Cole, but for all the babies born with this serious condition.
