We are living in a difficult time in Canada, just like our fellow citizens around the world. The novel coronavirus has forced us to halt many activities and change much of our way of life. Hydrocephalus Canada (HC) hopes everyone is staying safe and well during these uncertain and challenging times.
HC is adapting to a more virtual world. For 47 years, we have been your source for support and information as you or those you love have dealt with the challenges of spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus. Without generous support from you and our partners along the way, we could not have accomplished so much, but there is still more we need to do.
Now we need your help.
COVID-19 and the fight to end this pandemic means that every Canadian has to do their part and follow the government recommendations to flatten the curve and stay safe. Many of the fundraising activities and special events that supports HC programs and services have been cancelled or postponed. People need us and we will do whatever we can to ensure that we are here to help. To this end we have set up the HC SPIRIT FUND. This special fund will ensure that Hydrocephalus Canada can continue to provide critical programs and services to people in need.
If you are able, please consider making a gift now. Every dollar is vital and we are grateful for anything you can give. We know this crisis has impacted many families financially. Please know that, whether you are able to give at this time or not, Hydrocephalus Canada is here with you and for you every step of the way.
We are stronger together than alone. Thank you for being with us during this crisis. Please reach out to us if you need support. Join our Facebook support groups, email us or reach out by telephone through our toll-free phone line at 1-800-387-1575.
We will get through this, together.
