The First Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Ribbon

This was the first Awareness Ribbon created by Denise in May 2006. There was thought that the colors of black and yellow would infringe upon the Yellow Ribbon (Waiting for the return of a loved one - Military) and the Black Ribbon which is a symbol of mourning. Later, Breath of Hope adopted the color of Turquoise for our Logo and then for the ribbon for the Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Campaign.
