Did You Know? - Diaphragmatic Hernia was first described in 1575 by Pare' in reporting in 2 autopsies of adults who had acquired diaphragmatic hernias by trauma. In 1672, the first description of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia was reported by Lazarus Riverius during the autopsy of an adult male. Miraculously, this man lived 24 yrs with CDH in the 17th century. In 1701, Holt reported the first case of CDH in a child.

Meet Our Cherubs! -Alison Joanne Parker

In her mom's words...

This is Alison Joanne Parker at 6 days old, one day before CDH repair. Until she
was born, we had never heard of CDH. Now we know that we are among the lucky 50%
whose babies survive. When this picture was taken, she was on ECMO--full life
support. I didn't get to hold her until she was a month old. But at least I got
to hold her. And 10 years later, I still get to hug her every single day. Vote
for CHERUBS in the Vivint Gives Back Project. Help stop CDH and make it so more
parents can hug their babies every single day!

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