" TO BENEFIT THE AWARENESS OF HYDROCEPHALUS
The first time I heard that word "HYDROCEPHALUS" (water on the brain) really scared me. At birth my daughter Gina only had a 20% chance to survive (due to the massive cerebral bleed and swelling in her brain). She was born a 3pd and 12oz preemie then she went down to 2pd and 4oz. like I mentioned, at first the doctors didn't give much hope for her to survive, but they didn't know my Gina! Besides the hydrocephalus she also endured cardiac problems, severe apnea, liver problems. So as she was being discharged a couple months later after her birth, the Doctors told me not to expect her to live beyond 14 years old.
BUT she is still here! She has a strong will to live! She also has to deal with her Cerebral Palsy (mild). UPDATE: The past 2 year's Gina has been developing shunt infection's which resulted in her having to endure yet another 4 brain operations and she also had to deal with incision infections as well, they had her on 4-5 weeks of antibiotics and wound care which she has now recovered from. But, as usual my daughter has a great disposition about her. Now Gina has outlived the first team of doctors predictions by over 14 years with approx. 21 brain operations so far. So, I made it my mission as a Mom and Recording Artist to bring people together through music, so I can bring more public AWARENESS to this LIFE THREATENING condition that any one of us can develop through diseases, accidents, birth trauma, the aging process (which is Normal pressure Adult Hydrocephalus), and also about 40% of the Military Combats injuries are also developing this condition. PLEASE HELP ME IN MY MISSION!
