Largo, Florida -- Come join in the fun to benefit HUGS of Florida, Inc. a non-profit group supporting families who are affected by Hydrocephalus.

The term Hydrocephalus (commonly known as 'Water on the Brain') is derived from the Greek words "hydro" meaning water and "cephalus" meaning head. As its name implies, it is a condition in which the primary characteristic is excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the skull.

CSF is a clear fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. The excessive accumulation of CSF results in an abnormal dilation of the spaces in the brain called ventricles. This dilation causes potentially harmful pressure on the tissues of the brain.

Hydrocephalus affects a wide range of people from infants and older children to young, middle-aged and older adults.
