Did You Know? - Most cases of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia are left-sided.   What is CDH?  CDH occurs when the diaphragm fails to fully form, allowing abdominal organs into the chest cavity and preventing lung growth.  The diaphragm goes across the abdomen and has 2 halves.  Bilateral (both sides) CDH is very rare.
Meet Our Cherubs!  - Brady Passieu was born with LCDH on 10/13/10.  He astonished everyone at Children's National Medical Center and how well he dealt with CDH, he even smiled through the whole thing.  During his 65 day NICU stay Brady endure 4 surgeries.  He was able to come home breathing on his own and taking most feeds by mouth.  Since he has had one more surgery, numerous x-rays, ultrasounds, EEGs, MRIs, etc.  He has severe developmental delays, problems gaining weight, seizures, and requires more surgeries in the future to correct CDH related issues.  Through all of this Brady's smile can illuminate an entire room, he captivates everyone who meets him, and he loves defying all odds.  He was born fighting and has proven time and time again he is not willing to give up.  He truly is our little miracle. 

Thank you all for your support and your votes to help CDH babies!
