We Love It When CDH Families Get Together!

Here at CHERUBS we are strong advocates for CDH families meeting in person and getting to know each other and sharing experiences and support! We have many get-togethers around the world and our annual Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia International Conference as well. But families often get-together on their own informally and below are photos of 2 such get-togethers.

CDH families meeting in Atlanta:

Carla (Joseph's mom), Lynne (Baer's mom), Marion and Jason (Virginia's parents) and Amy and Steve (Faith's parents)

Our South Carolina Representative, Lynne Brogdon (Baer's mom), rubbing Amy Miles' (Faith's mom) tummy.

Indiana Get-Together:

Barb Wagner (Logan's mom), Corin Nava (Nate's mom), Amy Miles (Faith's mom), Kate Crawford (Shannon's mom) and Stephanie Olivarez (Shelby's mom)

Stephanie and Kate surrounded by gorgeous little girls (Lexi, Lily, Grace and Makayla)

I love seeing the pictures of all these family members and loved ones. It makes me realize once again that we're no alone in this. What a great feeling to know that there ARE others who have felt just like me. Thanks!!!
