Mildred received an endoscopic third ventriculostomy to relieve her hydrocephalus and get her on the path to a healthy childhood.

Our medical partner, CURE International, shared, “Now that Mildred has had her ETV procedure, the pressure from the build up in her head will decrease. This will enable Mildred to focus on growing up healthy.” Her family is “no longer worried about baby Mildred because she made it through surgery fine!”

Meet Mildred, a one-year-old from Uganda. Mildred has eight aunts and uncles and one older sister.

Mildred has hydrocephalus, a disease that causes swelling and pressure of the brain due to fluid buildup in the skull. Our medical partner, CURE International, tells us that Mildred needs an ETV, which stands for Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy. CURE International explains that with this procedure, “the fluid that has been building on her brain will drain properly and begin to decrease the pressure and size of her head. This will put her out of danger of the side effects of hydrocephalus such as, damage to the brain, blindness and death.”

For $1,500, we can pay for the ETV procedure Mildred needs at CURE.
