My name is Marylin Israel a longtime resident of Spotswood NJ my grandson Asher his name means Blessings Gift of God was born with CDH (Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia)
CDH is a birth defect that occurs during fetal development causing a hole in an infant's diaphragm, allowing organs to migrate through the hole and crowding the abdomen and ultimately may cause the infant's lungs to be small and underdeveloped. When the abdominal organs are in the chest, there is limited room for the lungs to grow
About 1,600 babies are born with CDH every year in the U.S. but only 800 survive, Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.
April is CDH Awareness Month, April 19 is CDH Awareness day for action. The CDH awareness ribbon is as unique as the babies born with CDH . the awareness colors for birth defect are pink and baby blue, so they were incorporated into the CDH ribbon, The official CDH awareness ribbon is pink, baby blue and light yellow to represent the survivors, with white clouds to represent the 50% of babies born with CDH who did not survive.
I would suggest please for the walk that everyone wears blue or pink or yellow or white to show your support for CDH.
Support the Fighters, Admire the survivors, Honor the taken.
