2008 - The Year of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness TM

Those who are fired with an enthusiastic idea and who allow it to take hold and dominate their thoughts find that new worlds open for them. As long as enthusiasm holds out, so will new opportunities. ~ Norman Vincent Peale

The quote above clearly has made many enthusiastic about Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness TM Day and their enthusiasm is contagious. It is so long overdue - CDH needs to be brought to the public forefront. It affects too many families out there, too many infants are born with it, too many die from it and too many have more challenging lives because of it too.

Why - 2008 is the Year of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness TM - one state at a time and in the future one Nation at a time. We can't do it alone but together we can accomplish this massive goal.
Wishing All a Healthy & Happy New Year!
