These care packages include the CDH Baby Book, a baby blanket, personal care items, disposable camera, baby shirt, hat, booties, handprint kit, hairlock holder, teddy bear and more.

Meet Our Cherubs! - Shane Torrence was born in 1993 with Left-Sided CDH and multiple other birth defects. He spent his first 10 months in ICU before coming home on a ventilator, oxygen and feeding tube while blind and deaf from lack of oxygen during a bout of pneumonia. By the age of 3, he could see, hear with hearing aids and was trach free. He lost his battle with CDH at age 6 in 1999 due to a one-in-a-million complication called a gastropleural fistula which complicated his 6th CDH repair. But Shane was a very happy little boy who loved Sesame Street, books, matchbox cars and he always had a smile on his face. Shane is the son of CHERUBS founder, Dawn Williamson.

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