Did You Know? - If CHERUBS wins the Vivint Gives Back contest, $1000 will be used to purchase wings for the Save the Cherubs Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Campaign.  The campaign involves putting wings on CDH survivors or siblings (of both survivors and non-survivors) or expectant mothers and putting them in every day situations to show that cherubs are everywhere.  The most common complaint about CDH awareness is that there is none!   Cherubs usually either do not survive or they survive well and you can't tell they ever had major surgeries unless they take their shirts off.  But cherubs are everywhere - in schools, parks, next to you in the grocery store, holding down jobs, going to college, raising children of their own - and we want to bring attention to that and raise CDH awareness.

Meet Our Cherubs!  - Michael "Bryer" Floyd was born Sept. 8, 2006 with CDH. He stayed the first 8 months of his life in the PICU & TCU where he under went 9 surgeries. He came home with a trach, a ventilator, oxygen, and feeding tube. He was able to come off the ventilator during the day at the age of 3 but still had to have oxygen through his trach. He didn't start walking until he was almost 3 years old, he had to use a peds walker and braces on his feet to help him. By the time he was 3 1/2 he was walking all by his self :) He still has to wear his ventilator and oxygen at night and gets all of his feeds through his feeding tube. Today Bryer is almost 5 years old and he is a happy and loving little boy. He loves to ride 4 wheelers, swim, play with his sister, and watch Sprout.

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