Sophomore Matt Rosin recently underwent a procedure to place a VP shunt placed in his brain to treat a condition called hydrocephalus.


Nearly four months following the bicycle collision outside Trabant University Center that left sophomore Matt Rosin unconscious, sister Halli Rosin said on her Facebook page her brother still has “a long time to go.”

After suffering blunt force trauma to his head Oct. 27, Rosin has undergone numerous surgeries and procedures over the last few months. More recently, he had a VP shunt placed in his brain to treat a condition called hydrocephalus, according to his sister’s Jan. 11 Facebook update. The condition developed as a result of excess fluid collecting in his brain ventricles.

“This is the last medical interference that could help him,” she said in that same post. “If successful, he will have one side of his skull put back on in about a week.”

According to Rosin’s GoFundMe page, his family has raised nearly half of the $50,000 goal to finance his rehabilitation and surgical costs. To date, $25,790 has been donated by 485 individuals on the page. They are still looking to reach their goal, according to Halli Rosin’s post on Feb. 7.
