For A Breath of Hope - CDH Awareness

Today, there was a very special event in Virginia.  Emma above was born, undiagnosed with CDH on March 31, 2010.  Her family paid it forward by having a wonderful event to help benefit Breath of Hope and so we can further help support families and support research efforts for CDH.  Click here for the link to the article that ran in The News-Gazette Paper.  The reporter, Claudia Schwab was at the event today taking notes - so there may be a follow up article!  Thank you to this amazing family. 

This picture is of the CHOP SDU decked out in their Turquoise - and from what we have heard - all CDH babies received onsies in the same style!  (Thank you Dr. Hedrick!)  

And here is Saint Louis Fetal Care staff in their turquoise on March 31st too!

This was just an awesome picture shared!

This is Emma making sure the Proclamation from Beuna Vista is correct!  So serious!

If you have pictures of you in turquoise - you would like to share - please feel free to contact us!  We love this.  We sincerely hope the hospitals out there promoting CDH Awareness Day received significant donations for their research.  That is the result we hope Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Day would have - to bring dollars to research to find answers - and to give hope!
