Hydrocephalus Awareness Week 2020 - Cora

12th February 2020


Cora's Story...

Hydrocephalus is not predictable -
take each day as it comes.

Meet Cora, born at 26 weeks.

Her first 9 months have been spent in hospital facing many complications. She was born with hydrocephalus due to having a grade 4 brain bleed.

She is wearing yellow to celebrate Hydrocephalus Awareness Week !

However, soon she will be getting changed into her little gown to head to surgery for a shiny new shunt as her old one has failed.

Thank you for sharing your story and giving a 'Heads Up' for hydrocephalus.
