The Tree as Our Symbol
The tree has always been a universal symbol of many things, including wisdom, protection, and strength. Specifically, in terms of Fibromuscular Dysplasia, the tree's branches signify the arteries affected by this disease, and life itself.
Tall and strong, the tree also represents beautifully, how by developing roots and growing, we grow and branch out, reaching towards the sky, and provide shelter for those in need as well as general awareness about FMD.
