Alrighty folks, we have a mission to accomplish!!!! Can we all e-mail Google and get them to do a Doodle for April 19th???
My e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (write your own. Keep it simple!).... .
April 19th in the International Celebration of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Daily. CDH is a severe birth defect that strikes 1 in every 2500 babies = a baby every 10 minutes in the world. 50% of babies born with CDH do not survive. The cause is unknown.
Never heard of CDH? Most haven't, though it's as common as Spina Bifida and Cystic Fibrosis with over 700,000 babies affected since 2000. Here at CHERUBS we've struggled to raise awareness for 17 years. Without awareness there are no research funds.
A CDH Doodle would raise awareness on an astronomical level for these babies and get them the attention and help they so desperately need. What better reason to doodle and who can resist cute little cherubs (the symbol for CDH) or the ribbon with the baby colors and clouds on a pretty spring day in April?
Please consider this proposal.
On behalf of over 3800 families of babies born with CDH,
Dawn M. Torrence Williamson
President & Founder
mom to Shane (1/28/93-9/11/99), born with CDH
