We have partnered with the Hydrocephalus Association to raise awareness for those who suffer from Hydrocephalus.

We donate a portion of the proceeds from our Xavier brand to Hydrocephalus Charities.

The Xavier Cables line of cables and adapters is all about finding a cure for hydrocephalus. We are happy to raise awareness,
and improve treatment, but ultimately our goal is to find a better way to treat hydrocephalus immediately, and eventually find a cure. 

The Xavier Story

In Feb. 2012, our son Xavier was born
3 months premature. As part of the
complications of a brain bleed, which
is common among premature
children born this early, he developed
hydrocephalus. He was in the NICU for
4 months at Primary Children’s
Hospital in Salt Lake. During his first 3
years, he had 8 hydrocephalus-related
brain surgeries and now has not one,
but two shunts to regulate the
cerebral-spinal fluid in his brain from
creating too much pressure and
causing brain damage. Shunts work
like little pressure valves. When the
pressure builds, the valve opens and
drains the fluid out of the brain.
Without these shunts, those with
hydrocephalus would not live. I had
never heard of hydrocephalus before
Xavier's birth. I tried to learn as much
as I could and eventually saw that
there was not a lot of corporate
sponsorship promoting awareness
and research to find a cure. I decided
that in some small way, I was going
to help. We launched the "Xavier"
brand in honor of Xavier my son &
hydro-hero, and we donate a portion
of the proceeds to charities for
hydrocephalus awareness & research
to find a cure. You'll note on the
packaging there is a hydrocephalus
blue ribbon. I have been married for 20
years to someone who is a
wonderful mother and wife. We
have six children.

My time with them is worth more
than all the treasures on earth. I'm
richly blessed. Xavier is our youngest
child. It's heartbreaking to watch
your child, especially a tiny baby
suffer in pain while you feel helpless.
You'd trade spots with them in a
second if you could. We had never
been in the NICU with any of our
other children. We had not
experienced the stress, worry,
and heartache of having children
with medical problems. Spending
four months in the NICU is a
humbling experience. You see so
many children struggling to hold
on to life. You see so many good
nurses and doctors doing everything
we know how to do with modern
medicine, to help them to live.
Although there have been great
medical advances in our day, treating
hydrocephalus still seems behind
in many ways. Through Xavier's
many surgeries, I have had one
reoccurring thought, and that is,
"There has got to be a better way."
With every cable sold, we hope
to do a little good in advancing
research and awareness for
hydrocephalus. We want to help
find a cure.
