Update on Baby Marc Enfirmo
Remember Baby Marc Enfirmo who was on the cover of our 2018 Annual Report? He was diagnosed with Arnold Chiari malformation and a few months after he was born, he underwent a lateral sphenoid meningocele repair. The M.T. Cheng Infants’ Fund of Let’s Save the Brain Foundation provided the Becker External Drainage & Monitoring System (EDMS) to manage his hydrocephalus. Recovery was stormy due to infections, but Marc is a tough fighter and pulled through.
