There seems to be some confusion in the Hydrocephalus community over the awareness ribbon used. For years Hydrocephalus was represented by a yellow awareness ribbon. The PHF decided to use a light blue ribbon to represent Hydrocephalus. There is now the two tone blue ribbon… light for pediatrics and dark blue for adults, with a water droplet to represent CSF. This personally makes more sense to me, since Hydrocephalus is not just a childhood illness… those kids grow up to become adults living with Hydrocephalus. Not to mention the fact that many older people acquire Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus. I would ask that you help me in promoting this ribbon throughout the world, so that we can all unite and have this ribbon become recognized as the official Hydrocephalus Awareness Ribbon. It would be fantastic to one day see Hydrocephalus Awareness as prominent in stores, advertisements, commercials, etc just as the pink Breast cancer ribbon is. Will you help?
I have a passion for Hydrocephalus awareness, as I have three family members who suffer from it. I also created a Hydrocephalus awareness ribbon that is now being used world wide.
