Fight Against Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia at Change.org

There will *never* be a cure for CDH - it is not something that a pill can fix. Lung function is just *one* factor in the survival of CDH babies - more babies die from, or stay in the hospital longer, because of infections and side effects than lack of lung function. The way to stop CDH is to find the cause and prevention of this horrible birth defect. The way to do that is to raise awareness and to promote more research for CDH! But we can't forget the families already affected by CDH and we must *always* promote support first!
