We’re incredibly proud to announce that we’ve made the Buffalo Business First “Fast Track List” for 2018. This list recognizes independent, local companies that have achieved a certain amount of revenue growth each year.
Because of the nature of this award, we think that it really belongs to our amazing customers and the wonderful community we’re so lucky to serve.
That’s why we’ve decided to give back and donate $1000 to The Hydrocephalus Foundation, a charity near and dear to our hearts.
The Hydrocephalus Foundation is an organization who’s crucial initiative is to accelerate critical research, expand patient support and education, and raise unprecedented public awareness about hydrocephalus. Their goal is to raise $20M by 2020.
Hydrocephalus comes from the Greek words hydro meaning water and cephalus meaning head.
Hydrocephalus is an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within cavities in the brain called ventricles. Cerebrospinal fluid is produced in the ventricles and in the choroid plexus. It circulates through the ventricular system in the brain and is absorbed into the bloodstream. This fluid is in constant circulation and has many functions, including to surround the brain and spinal cord and act as a protective cushion against injury. It contains nutrients and proteins necessary for the nourishment and normal function of the brain, and carries waste products away from surrounding tissues.
Hydrocephalus occurs when there is an imbalance between the amount of CSF that is produced and the rate at which it is absorbed. As the CSF builds up, it causes the ventricles to enlarge and the pressure inside the head to increase.
