Did You Know? - Over 600,000 babies have been with CDH since 2000.  That means over a quarter million babies have lost their lives to this horrible birth defect.

Meet Our Cherubs!  - Maxwell Anderson Martin was born on May 5, 2010 with cdh.  He weighed 8lbs. 4 ozs. and was 20 1/2 inches long.   He was transported to Dayton Children's Hospital from Miami Valley on May 9th and had his cdh repair surgery on Monday, May 10th.  He was decided that he was ready to breathe on his own when he ext-abated himself the Friday after surgery.  Max had a little trouble learning to eat and gaining weight.  He would fall asleep in the middle of taking his bottle.  Once Max was eating on his own and the feeding tube was taken out, he was released from the hospital to come home.  We waited a long time for our little Cherub and he truly is our Miracle Max.  We are so thankful to all the nurses and doctors at both Miami Valley Hospital and Dayton Children's Hospital.
