Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia AwarenessTM started with Breath of Hope's campaign to have each and every state in the US to Proclaim March 31 as Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness® Day. This year we had 31 States. Governors and local officials all over the United States became aware of CDH. Senator Clinton became aware of CDH. In nine months we accomplished something no other had done before. We will continue to work towards a Perpetual Day that will recognize March 31 as a day to pause, reflect and learn of this birth defect that every week 5 families hear about for the first time. We want to change that fact.
