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...

Sponsor a Night

I am taking orders for shirts for Parker Reese Foundation throught tomorrow at 3pm. If you are interested in purchasing a t-shirt, the cost is $16 a night. This money sponsors a CDH family for one night stay at Parker's House, which is a home that allows families of a CDH child to stay FOR FREE for hospital stays, checkups, pretty much anytime they need a home away from home during the CDH journey. It is located near Duke and UNC. The stylish shirt is available in numerous colors and has some great CDH info on the back. Please let me know if you are interested an I can mail you an order form. I am sending mine off tomorrow, but they are taking orders through Sunday!! I'm torn between pink and purple, so I think I will get both. Please support this awesome cause!! Several families I have met during this time stayed at Parker's House and had we not been fortunate enough to live in a city with a major hospital, we might have stayed there as well! Email me at for more info.
