The Williams Family Fundraiser
Our Goal: $500 : raised $593
On January 16, 2017 we went in for a routine anatomy scan, excited to see our baby boy. At the end we were told that Colt's heart was on the right side and his stomach was in his chest. He would need a simple operation to correct it after he was born. When we got home we found out it was so much more than just a simple operation. He'd need surgery, but also a lot of other life saving measures that truly were scary to think about. After doing weeks of research, we ultimately decided to travel from Virginia to Florida to receive the best possible care we could for Colt. Colt spent 52 days in the hospital under the care of Dr. Kays. Now he is nearly one and a half and thriving!

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→
