IH Awareness Video
IH Awareness Song and Video Now on YouTube.com
A special music video designed to increase public awareness of intracranial hypertension is now available on YouTube.com. The song “Robbie Can You Hear Me?” was written by Tim Piper of the band, Working Class Hero. While the song is a tribute to Robbie Clements, a Californian teen who was diagnosed at age 12 with chronic IH, it aims to educate a wider audience about the effects of the disorder.
Piper, a friend of Dori Clements, Robbie’s mother, was inspired to write the song after learning of the Clements’ experiences with IH. The song is part of a larger musical project to relate the experiences of IH patients through song and video, which Piper and another fellow musician (and Clements’ family friend), Barry Peterson, hope to complete. Both musicians have also performed at the Friends Benefit Concerts, which are organized by the Clements family and friends to raise money for IH research.
