$9484 to reach $1,000,000 for CDH

We are very proud to announce that we are extremely close to raising $1,000,000 for CDH research, awareness and supportive services.

99% of the way to our goal!

We are very, very close to our goal and hope to reach it by our 20th anniversary celebration on February 12, 2015.  Will you help us to help CDH families?

This is 1 million dollars that has paid for care packages for newborns, events for families to meet other families and learn more about CDH, research grants to hospitals, awareness projects and much, much more over the past 20 years. Every single penny has gone to further our goal of helping families while ending CDH.

Featured Cherub: Taylor Jarecki Steffensmeier

Featured cherub of the week is Taylor Jarecki Steffensmeier.  This young woman continues to beat the odds one breath at a time and continues to bring hope to so many CDH families.  She continues to raise CDH Awareness and is an inspiration to so many of our members.  Here is Taylor’s story in her own words: 

I was born with undiagnosed LCDH in 1991 in a small rural hospital. The doctors noticed something was wrong with me right from the start as I entered the world blue. It was too foggy to be life flighted to the nearest NICU which was two hours away so I was taken by ground. Not even 24 hours old my parents had to make the decision to put me on ECMO. At 5 days old I had my first hernia repair surgery while I was still on ECMO. My hole was about quarter size, which doesn’t sound big in an adult but I was a five pound baby with that size of hole. They used a mesh patch. I was able to come off ECMO shortly after my repair.  One month later I broke out of the NICU and got to go home!

3rd Annual Get Your Shine On Golf Tournament Fundraiser

The 3rd Annual “Get Your Shine On” Golf Tournament was held at The Pointe Golf and Event Center in Elk Point, SD on September 8, 2018.  The tournament is held in honor of Rae Ann Davis, daughter of Sydney and Garrett Davis of Burbank, SD.  Rae Ann lost her fight to CDH shortly after she was born due to a large lack of development of her diaphragm along with limited lung development. 

Get Your Shine On was created to honor her memory and serve as a time for fellowship, support and a chance to raise funds to aid in the research of CDH and to support families that have been affected.  This event has continued to grow over the years and has raised over $34,500 in total, including the $14,500 plus from this year alone. Last year a silent auction was added to the event, which is conducted live at the golf event and posted onto Facebook for those unable to attend.  They had 64 golfers take in the day out on the course and numerous supporters who enjoyed the day from the clubhouse patio.
