This is Laurensia and she has hydrocephalus.

Hydrocephalus is a condition in which there is an excess amount of cerebrospinal fluid in the cavities of the brain, causing increased pressure inside the skull which can cause enlargements to the head as well as pains and other symptoms which can lead to death.

There is currently no cure for hydrocephalus so in order to remove the excess fluid a pump called a shunt is placed in her brain in order to allow the fluid to drain to other parts of her body. Throughout her lifetime she may have to go through several shunt revisions due to malfunctions, blockage and other reasons.

Living with hydrocephalus is painful and tiring and you go through these emotions every single day of your life.

September is National Hydrocephalus Awareness month and since I love basketball and play every week I want to use it to support and sponsor this cause. For the whole month of September I'm going to donate $5.00 to this cause for every point that I score in my games. On top of that, if our team wins I'm going to donate another $50.00.

You can help out as much or as little as you want or you can sponsor me when I play my basketball games. The more points I score, the more funds we can raise.

You can check out our team website on The ROCKS.

The purpose of this campaign is not only to bring awareness for the condition but also to raise funds so that Laurensia can attend a hydrocephalus conference in the USA where she can meet other people who experience the exact same thing that she goes through and understand more of the condition itself. Procedes will also be donated to organisations who support this cause and try to make a difference to those living with hydrocephalus.

Your help and contribution will be greatly appreciated and all efforts will be used to support this cause and put a smile on Laurensia's face.

Let's all do it for her
