Trendy causes are fun.

January 15, 2010

So today I received a package from my mom, in it were several hydrocephalus awareness bracelets. I’m all for bringing attention to the swollen brains of the world, but I can’t help but feel that these are a little inappropriate.

It reads: ~Hydrocephalus~ Catch the Wave of Awareness~

Now, of all the people in the world, people with hydrocephalus should not be catching waves. We cant surf, we very rarely have any balance at all. And why white? Our arch-enemy, the spinal fluid that inflates our brain is white. Maybe thats the wave? The spinal fluid that is released in surgery?

    Never really thought of it that way!

    The slogan doesn’t bother me too much… I wish they had some other styles though. Another hydro organization makes these crystal ones, very pretty. But a little pricier.

    ya… the slogan sort of struck me as odd too. but, I wanted something for myself and everyone else to wear. I love you so much my non-surfing, wave-catching son!

    The one I have is blue. Even though the slogan is weird. Having Hydrocephalus shouldn’t stop you from doing anything. So don’t let it.
