From cherub Lizzy:
"Hi I am Elizabeth Plakholm and this is my 5th annual walk for Cherubs and im very excited to raise more money for CDH research. I was born with CDH in 2002 and had surgery at 3 days old, the doctors used a gortex patch to close the hole. At age 7 i reherniated and had another surgery and at 10yrs old i had 3 surgeies. I have to take lots of medication and go to lots of appointments. I want to continue to raise money to help other families who hàve been affected by CDH. Half of the babies born with CDH don't survive and the survivors quite often have life long complications. There is still no known cause for CDH And very little research. We will be walking 10KM again this year and everyone's welcome!"
