In 1994, Troy Chandler was starting to experience the unknown. “Out of the blue he started having headaches and seizures” Annette , Troy’s wife and organizer told saultonline.com Saturday at the third annual “Troy’s Trail” for hydrocephalus and/or spina bifida.
Chandler was diagnosed with hydrocephalus (water on the brain) and has since undergone 12 operations with no guarantee that he won’t need another.
The annual walk attracted more than 50 people supporting the cause.
With no support group locally, the couple joined the Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus Association of Ontario and started a local fundraising event to bring awareness to the illness.
Saultonline.com caught up with the Chandler’s as the 3rd annual walk was getting underway to tell us more about their personal story.
