Mission:
Breath of Hope exists to combat the congenital diaphragmatic hernia birth defect. We are committed to supporting parents, children, family members and friends facing the diagnosis of a congenital diaphragmatic hernia birth defect. 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.
Results:
Since 2008, we have either directly donated, help direct or encouraged, supported or assisted others to donate over $150,000 to Medical Research to benefit congenital diaphragmatic hernia research. Since 2008, we have had 34 States issue Proclamations or Resolutions and the US Senate to issue a Resolution for March 31st to be Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Day. We have distributed our medically reviewed materials, our expectant parent packages to hundreds of families and hospitals throughout the US and outside the US.
