Fight CDH with Xander

Fight CDH with Xander
There is nothing more terrifying than the prospect of losing your precious child. For many families facing CDH, this is their gut-wrenching reality.

This November, we’re aiming to raise $1000 for CDH research and support in honour of our survivor, Xander, who was diagnosed with right-sided CDH at birth.

Like many families, we had never heard of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia until Xander came along. CDH is a life-threatening defect that affects 1 in 2500 births. A hole in the baby’s diaphragm – the muscle that allows us to breathe – displaces their abdominal contents into the chest cavity, resulting in under-development of the lungs.

The fatality rate is high, and CDH survivors face ongoing health complications and surgeries.

CDH is traumatic, regardless of the outcome. As a CDH mama, nothing makes you feel more helpless than watching your baby travel their CDH journey. Families face many unknowns, and the journey can be incredibly isolating. Emotional support is vital.

The goals of CDH Australia are simple:
-Reach all families affected by CDH
-Provide quality support and information
-Fund CDH research

Xander turns one this November. While we are filled with gratitude, our hearts ache for the families that have been touched by CDH. Support us in helping CDH Australia achieve their vision; no family to face CDH alone.
