Shane Torrence
Left-Sided Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia

The family of Shane Torrence has donated funds as part of our Adopt A Hospital program to send CDH materials to childrens' hospitals who treat babies born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. Shane's family has chosen to adopt Duke University Medical Center, where Shane spent the first 10 months of his life. Donated were; CDH information poster, "Stories of Cherubs" Vols I & II, Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Ribbon pins, Parent Reference Guides, Newsletters and brochures. This is enough CDH information for 100 families.
