I am not affiliated with the Charity, I thought it would be a good cause to bring to vapers attention. This is Jeff's neice the owner of AtomicVapors. If you could spread the word you can link to this post or whatever is easier for you.
Baby Arianna was diagnosed in her second trimester as having CDH (Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia).
So what is CDH:
- CDH is a hole in the diaphragm (the muscle under the lungs that is responsible for breathing) that allows organs from the abdomen to move into the chest
- CDHs affect about 1 in every 2,500 babies
- CDH can often be diagnosed during a routine ultrasound. If it’s not diagnosed during pregnancy, it is usually diagnosed shortly after birth when a baby is having trouble breathing.
- The outlook for babies born with CDH is increasingly positive with new surgical techniques and ways to support babies as they heal. However, it’s possible that your baby can have long-term problems and need regular follow-up care after going home from the hospital.
Ariannia will require an immediate surgery as soon as she is born to attempt to correct the problem.Eric & Ashley are the parents of Arianna. Eric currently serves with the United States Marines as a Marine Recruiter in the State of Pennsylvania.
Ashley is currently a counselor dealing with children diagnosed with Autism, ADD, ADHD, & Asperger's.
This one hits home. Arianna is my neice. We purchased pink bracelets to sell for $3.00. All the money will go to assist Ashley and Eric with doctors and hospital bills. For the last 60 days of Ashleys pregnancy she will have to live at the Ronald McDonald house in Philadelphia. It is estimated that Ashley & Eric will have over $25,000 in hospital bills and expenses.
