New Hope For Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia

Keeping It Simple.

Posted by Jessica Singletary on June 8, 2008

We are 6 months into this not-for-profit thing and still loving every single minute of it.  I can tell you that it’s literally a full time job but it is absolutely the most rewarding job I have ever had. 

There are so many things that we have planned but are going to try and keep things simple the first year.  We are really excited about the foundation and getting it off the ground.  Our plan is to have our name in every hospital and doctors office in the United States by the year 2009.  It’s a huge goal but I believe that it’s something we can easily accomplish with a lot of hard work. 

I cannot wait for this foundation to really take off and our fundraisers to take place as I know that it will mean only wonderful things for CDH families.  We are going to change the face of CDH one family at a time. 

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

This is just the beginning and I promise each of you that we will make a name for ourselves and we will not stop until congenital diaphragmatic hernia is no longer.   If any of you are interested in helping please do not hesitate to contact us via email or telephone.   This is a ride you don’t want to miss.

    So glad we are part of the ride! If you want, you can add Leah’s caringbridge site. It gets updated a few times a year, but has her story from the beginning.

    I still need to send some pics to you–do you want birth and current ones? We got plenty to chose from. 😉
