My Story

Please help us help CDH Australia in memory of our little boy Chase❤️ Chase was just 7 hours old when he lost his battle to CDH in my husbands arms & joined god & all the angels up in heaven. Our little man was so amazing in every way, he had curly black hair and a little button nose you just want to eat 🙊 he had long little feet and hairy little shoulders 😂 & such precious soft skin i could have stroked and kissed forever💙💙💙💙

Chase had a condition where his diaphragm wasn’t totally complete which allowed his other organs to move in and out of his chest while he was growing in my womb. He was never aware or in any pain but if does mean it can stunt the growth of certain organs & when they arrive in this big world it can be quite difficult for them as they no longer have their mummies breathing and eating etc for them. Lots babies with this condition have an operation at birth and go on to live perfectly healthy lives. But unfortunately for Chase he was only left with 10% of a lung and it was just too hard for the little guy to work with this capacity, as much as he gave it all he had & the beautiful people at King Edward tried with all their skills & machinery. It was just impossible for our little guy to make it to surgery.
We are so grateful for those 7 hours with our little man, cuddling him inside my womb for 9 months was something I will always treasure and seeing his daddy get to cuddle him in his arms here, even if it was only for a couple of hours, was the most amazing thing. He seemed so at peace & happy there in his Daddy’s big strong arms. He looked so tiny. I could sit and stare at that photo all day every day. Even though the image is going to be permanently imprinted in my head forever.
The love we have for him is unmeasurable... He is and always will be our absolute everything. And his strength and fight will always make us so proud, we won’t ever forget that.

CDH unfortunately effects 1 in every 2000 pregnancies, which isn’t very uncommon. But there is hardly any awareness! If we can raise as much awareness maybe one day they will have enough research and insight on how to prevent loosing beautiful babies like our Chase.

I've created this page because I want to make a difference. I'm inspired by the work of CDH Australia and wanted to support them by raising money. Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about CDH Australia, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
