Did You Know? - If CHERUBS wins the Vivint Gives Back Contest, $10,000 to will be used to reinstate New Member Packets to all new members of CHERUBS who are grieving families or families of older survivors. Our CDH HOPE Totebag project provides New Member Packets to expectant families and families of newborn cherubs. The New Member Packets will include information about Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia, newsletters, brochures and other materials. The $10,000 will also help to cover the postage costs of mailing out the packets. The New Member Packets are so important to CDH families because often, they feel isolated and alone. The The New Member Packets will bring them information and support.
Meet Our Cherubs! - Adam (8-14-02) was born with right sided CDH. His repair was done when he was 3 days old and placed on ECMO on the 4th day. He spent 10 days on ECMO, 23 on a respirator, and 44 on O2. He brought him home after 63 days in NICU. He has Asthma, Interstital Lung Disease, Patent Ductus Arteriosis (repaired in January 11), and a left nonfunctioning Multi-Cystic Dysplastic Kidney. He is going into 3rd grade and is homeschooled. He loves to play with his friends, ride his bike, play video games, and torture his sisters (the normal 8 yo stuff). Our journey with Adam has been on going, there have been new obstacles throw in his path and he acts like they can't stop him. The spirit of this little boy is so resilient, he doesn't complain when he can't do what he wants because of his conditions, he just finds something else to throw himself into. Adam you are such a blessing and you bring such joy to our family.
Thank you all for your support and your votes to help CDH babies!
