This new design still incorporates much of what my original logo below stands for. Every Hydro warrior dreams of the day when better treatment options will be available or at best, a cure is found. A day where no more brain surgery is needed and a day where we will be free from pain, suffering and uncertainty…it’s more than just a dream, it’s our reality!
I designed this logo with the intent of portraying the link we as Hydro Warriors have with one another.
In the background, you see the doves on either side of the world…because Hydrocephalus affects people from all corners of the globe. Also, the dove’s origin is a symbol for hope, which originates from Genesis 8:8-12, toward the end of the story of Noah’s Ark, when Noah “sent out a dove to see if the water had receded from the surface of the ground.”
In the droplet the words “Never alone” is an affirmation of solidarity. When you shed a tear at your lowest, lonely moment or when you fear for a loved one and feel helpless, these are the words you need to remember. No matter how lonely the world becomes living with this condition (something we can all relate to), there are others who know and share your pain.
The word “Family“, represents the close connections I have made with people whom I have never even met but have shared my deepest fears and concerns with. Whom I have encouraged at their weakest moments or whom I have leaned on when I was the one needing someone. It’s a relationship of give and take, it’s an understanding and a bond. It’s having empathy and compassion when your own family cannot comprehend.
The word “Warrior” represents what we have had to become and continue to be, that is what we are. We have the battle scars to prove it after all…
The anchor, a symbol of safety and constancy, comes to symbolize hope in Hebrews 6:19, which states, “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” There’s a level of trust which goes in knowing you have to face surgery or another day without help.
Without hope, we will be lost. There might not be a cure…Yet…but there will always be hope.
