There is no other organization that I’m aware of that wear a ribbon made of a cow print. Odd. But, there’s actually a reason that we use the cow pattern to represent our international group of parents and survivors of Omphalocele referred to as Mothers of Omphalocele. We affectionately refer to ourselves as “Moos,” thus the cow theme!
Our group is comprised of 600+ members from countries all around the world. Mothers of Omphalocele provides a forum for all parents of “O Babies” to allow us a chance to celebrate, mourn, comfort, debate, question, and support each other through what is likely to be the most challenging times in all of our lives.
There is no cost to be a member of this group. The resources and ideas that are generated in this group are invaluable. Members are known to share supplies, research, advancements in technology and medical protocols, and personal experience in this private forum.
We Moos will observe Omphalocele Awareness on January 31, 2013. We are asking all of our friends, families, associates, medical team, and children to wear white and black in honor of our courageous children and in memory of our “O-Angels” and their families.
Thank you for your continued support of our special “O” baby warriors.
