Did You Know? - that 50% of the money won in this contest will go to pay for lab kits for CDH Genetic Research at Massachusetts General?  The research team at Mass General has the largest genetic research database for CDH and is very close to finding the cause of this birth defect.  They have also been big supporters of CHERUBS and CDH families since our charity began in 1995 and they guest speak at our conferences and draw samples for research from families at our conferences as well.

Meet Our Cherubs!  - Leann has always been a "Tuffy" as her daddy calls her.  Before she was born they said she would spend 6-9 months in the NICU.  We came home after 3.  When her lungs collapsed from pneumonia they said she might go at any time...but she made it.  She has always been a miracle, a cherub for sure.  She is the bravest person I know.  If you have ever met her you would be pleasantly surprised at how social, bright and thoughtful of others she is.  A 4 yr. old who loves to be with other kids and any adult who will take a minute to listen to her questions.  She is an actress, musician, tree hugger, bug lover, and all around awesome hostess to her family and friends. 

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