CDH Awareness

We were blessed with the birth of an almost perfect child. His imperfection was called Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) and he had surgery to correct it when he was just 6 days old. He fought to get to where he is today.

We strive to raise awareness for his fight and CDH every second of every day. We don't need an excuse to share the story of our journey.

That being said, having a month, a day, a color that unifies us and stands as a symbol for our fight gives us a renewed sense of purpose and power. It makes us feel we belong to this club we never wished or imagined being a part of and allows us to ask others to join in our quest. It starts with a day and a color and carries us through the other 364 days.

March is CDH Awareness month and we ask that you join us in wearing turquoise on March 31st. More importantly, tell someone WHY you are wearing it! (And we would love it if you could send us a picture of you wearing your turquoise!)
