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.

My son was born with CDH. I heard about Breath of Hope from the social worker at UCSF. Breath of Hope has many families going through the same thing, and it's nice to know that you aren't alone. It's also great to be able to give advice to new parents who are just coming into this whirl wind of an experience and give them hope and encouragement. This organization also influenced me to go out and get Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness day a proclaimed day of awareness in the city I live in.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
