Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Trademark

We would like to say thank you to the 100's of CDH families who assisted in this petition - for all your hard work in recruiting people to sign, in spreading the word about the trademark and petition and raising TONS of awareness, in researching for the lawyer and for all your support to help stop this trademark.

Our Medical Advisory Committees and the over 100 pediatric surgeons, nurses and other medical professionals who are standing with us against this trademark. They have been raising Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness long before the first CDH organization existed and they are the ones who fight for these babies along side families every single day.

And to the Olivia Raine Foundation, the Jack Ryan Gillham Foundation, Rainbow of Hope, and especially our sister organizations CHERUBS UK and CHERUBS Australia - along with 2 other groups who didn't want to be listed publicly but all signed and recruited for more signatures! These groups all jumped in immediately, signed themselves, posted all over the internet for more signatures, and never blinked an eye or hesitated a second about standing up for CDH families and stopping this trademark! I am so proud of all of these groups and ALL of our members for putting CDH families first!!!
