A toddler who could end up with brain damage if she bumps her head is finally allowed to run around thanks to a protective helmet. Little one-year-old Kalisie Sisco has hydrocephalus, a condition which causes a buildup of fluid in the brain, and can be deadly if left untreated. Doctors performed an operation to insert a shunt, a medical device which drains the excess fluid in the brain and relieves pressure, when she was five-weeks-old. But the life-saving shunt is extremely delicate and her parents Ashley Gray-Bennett, 31, and Jeremy Sisco, 31, had to watch Kalisie closely to ensure she didn't bump her head.
