OUR STORY

70196925_fb_img_1492530828823.jpg

Our daughter Anya was diagnosed with CDH, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, at my 20 week ultrasound. It was the most devastating time in our lives, as she was given a very poor prognosis at a world-renowned children's hospital near our hometown. One doctor said she was “ethically optional to treat”!! By God's grace and mercy we found a doctor who understood Anya’s complex condition, and we were able to relocate to get treatment there. Here she is now at six, full of energy, life, and love. Unfortunately, many families do not get enough information on treatment options, and feel there only option is to terminate the pregnancy or make do with a medical center near them. Often these facilities do not have the expertise to treat CDH babies effectively. It is estimated that the survival rate is only 50-60%. Our family is partnering with Tiny Hero this year to help get information, support, and most of all HOPE to CDH families. Please join us, and help other babies have the same success as our miracle Anya!


WHY TINY HERO?

What is CDH?

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) occurs in an unborn baby when there is a hole in, or incomplete formation of, the diaphragm (the muscle under the lungs that is responsible for breathing).

CDH affects about one in every 2,500 babies (1600 cases in the U.S. each year), and occurs as often as cystic fibrosis and spina bifida, yet most have never heard of it. On average, only 50% of these babies survive. Learn more about what is CDH→
