News from CHERUBS

Featured Volunteer: Josh Hensley

Josh Hensley is the father of two CDH babies, both of whom grew their wings.  It is hard to put into words how important this person is to the charity. Back in October 2010, this individual sent CHERUBS an email interested in being a volunteer with CHERUBS. Having lost two children to CDH, this member wrote in this email that he felt immense responsibility to “wage war” on CDH. His wife and he wanted to set up a CDH awareness tree at the festival of trees for Primary Children’s Hospital that year and wanted CHERUBS to be a part of it. From there, the rest is history. Josh Hensley is currently the Research Director at CDHi and has held many volunteer positions at CHERUBS since late 2010. He has traveled the world raising awareness and continues to wage war against CDH and we know he will not quit until that war is won. He has been a voice of reason throughout the years, for we don’t get much Dad point of views on our volunteer team. He is a one of kind man, has a big heart and is out there in the trenches fighting to put an end to CDH. Josh and his wife Melanie are the proud parents of 4 girls. Today, we thank Josh for all he does for CDH International and CHERUBS, his passion in wanting to wage war on CDH and his desire to help all families that are affected by CDH.
