Meet Luke Russell, a freshman at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater who plans to major in marine biology with either a second major or a minor in psychology. Luke was diagnosed with hydrocephalus before he was born. He also has spina bifida and received his first wheelchair when we was 15 months old.
"Research activity is at its highest level ever. There’s no magic bullet but we’re making steady progress and there are a lot of people that care a lot about where we’re going and what we’re doing. We’re working hard to find better treatment options and a cure on your behalf." - Dr. John Kestle
