Breath of Hope - What Support is About...

I'll lean on you and you lean on me and we'll be okay. --Dave Matthews Band
Life throws everyone a curb. It happens every day. No one can do it alone. When families are devastated by a diagnoses of congenital diaphragmatic hernia we know it can take many different paths. No two cases are exactly alike. Some of these children survive with little complications, some minor, some have a variety of issues that they outgrow or overcome. Then there are some who struggle, who have so much to overcome and still they choose wings over feet.
The families lean on one another for inspiration, information and understanding. Many times, the only people who truly know what you have been through are those who have been there themselves.
