Breath of Hope exists to raise awareness of congenital diaphragmatic hernia by working with parents, family members, and medical professionals to educate and support all who are affected by or who want to learn more about CDH.
We carry out this mission through promoting public awareness, supporting the medical community and encouraging research efforts to one day successfully treat all those diagnosed with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Most people have not heard of a Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. Most people only hear about this birth defect on the day they receive the diagnosis. Breath of Hope seeks to change that fact.
What Difference has it made?
Breath of Hope’s Awareness Campaign and other programs have increased awareness, funding and participation for research which will one day be instrumental in successful treatments for CDH.
Breath of Hope, Incorporated would like to thank GMAC Financial Services for awarding a generous Grant Award in 2008 which carried out our mission by starting to establish a Scholarship Endowment Fund. Breath of Hope, Incorporated awarded five scholarships in 2009.
