Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia AwarenessTM on A NATIONAL Level!

Yesterday evening one of our Directors, Terri who is in Iowa, went out to see Hillary Clinton speak. This has nothing to do with politics or political affiliations. Terri was thrilled to meet this First Lady and Candidate for President. As anyone would be, this woman has made history.

Terri was able to tell her that her beautiful daughter, Ava, is a survivor of congenital diaphragmatic hernia and that Iowa has signed a Proclamation for March 31, 2008 as Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia AwarenessTM Day. Which Ms. Clinton, replied, "A Proclamation, that is wonderful." Terri also handed her one of Breath of Hope's AwarenessTM Day brochures.

This in itself is spreading awareness - but it can be done by anyone - everyone - from Presidential Candidate to Mayors to the person waiting in line with you doing holiday shopping - can be made aware!

Breast Cancer Awareness did not get as big as it is now - overnight - it takes small steps, one by one to get it to the level it is now!

Breath of Hope, our members, our friends and our volunteers are doing this! One step at a time.
