CHKD Families

Today we had the pleasure of presenting Karen Gershman, CHKD's Executive Director of Development, with a check for $43,793.00 all raised through our 9th Annual Fishing Fest!  It's such an honor to be able to support an organization that makes such a positive impact on the Hampton Roads community and beyond.  

At this year's event, we actually hosted two of the many families that have been helped by CHKD.  The stories of these two families are reminders of exactly why supporting this organization is so important.

Nailah was one of the first miracle babies whose life was saved by innovative cooling therapy pioneered by a CHKD neonatologist. Before cooling therapy, her chances of survival would have been 50-50 and her chance of surviving without severe brain damage would have been slim. By the end of her treatment, Nailah emerged successfully and hit all normal developmental milestones.

At just 1 month old, Elijah's doctors discovered that he had a rare heart murmur that was the cause of a dangerously large hole in his heart. When he showed no signs of improvement, cardiologists reported that his health would eventually fail if he didn't have heart surgery. CHKD called in a specialist that had experience with this rare condition to work closely with CHKD surgeons. The surgery went without complications and with continued monitoring, Elijah is now enjoying life as a normal teenage boy.
