CONGENITAL DIAPHRAGMATIC HERNIA AWARENESS DAY
(March 31, 2008)
Today is the first annual congenital diaphragmatic hernia awareness day. Only 30 states have proclaimed this, including Kansas and Missouri. If you want to know if your state is involved you can find a list at breathofhopeinc.com
Diaphragmatic hernias occur in over 1 in 2000 births. There is a 50% survival rate for these babies. There is no known cause for these birth defects.
To help celebrate and honor Kaden and the other survivors, and to keep the memories of those who did not survive alive, please light a candle at 7pm (your time) and keep it lite for one hour. Thank you!!!
