MEET OUR VOLUNTEERS - deAnn Strother McGilberry

Karen MyersdeAnn Strother McGilberry

My name is deAnn, 2 of my 3 children were born with CDH. Claude lived 10 days and was diagnosied before birth at 20 weeks. Celie is 6 now and was born undiagnoised. ( Even with high risk ultra sound at 7 months ) She spent a month in NICU, surgery at 3 days. What a fighter , other than her scar you would never no she had such a ruff start. I also have a 10 yr old son Chambers. I have been married to my husband, Darren for 12 yrs. We are actively participating in CDH studies, we never want our children to go through what we have.

Having been on both sides of CDH I hope I can be there for other parents who are going through what we did.
