Our son Maxton was diagnosed with left-sided congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) at his 19 week ultrasound. Maxton was born on 3/3/09 at Vanderbilt University. He fought hard for 18 days but earned his wings on 3/21/09. Maxton was an inspiration to many during his brief time on earth and has forever changed our lives. If your child is diagnosed with CDH, please feel free to contact us. Maxton may no longer live here on earth, but he will live forever in our hearts...

CDH Awareness Day!

Please remember to wear turquoise tomorrow in memory of Maxton and all other CDH babies! Please also tell someone new about CDH to make more people aware! If you are in Nashville please attend Max's balloon release. Hopefully it won't rain! We are having it at Centennial Park (main parking lot in front of parthenon) at 6pm. There will also be several other balloon releases around. Please take pictures and send them to me!!! :-)

By the way, we are still doing well. I know people keep asking, so I thought I would throw that out there. Thanks for praying for peace for us!

Ashley I sent a memo out to everyone at work Firday to wear turquiose today in memory of Maxton and for CDH awareness day. Girl you should see all the turquiose. I still have been thinking allot about you, David and baby Maxton. My heart goes out to you. I made a donation to the Parker Reese Foundation in Maxton's name.
Love & Prayers, Tessa Chesser Gough
