Another Angel.

Posted by Jessica Singletary on March 22, 2009

After 18 days of a courageous battle against CDH Maxton passed away last night in the arms of his parents.  Please say a prayer for this family that they will somehow find God’s peace and mercy during this difficult time.  Our condolences and prayers are with them.

Folks there are too many babies dying from this horrible defect and it’s time we all stood up TOGETHER to make a difference in the lives of those that CDH affects.   I am so angry that another baby has died and that another family will know what it means to bury their child.   I am more motivated today than I ever thought possible to beat CDH and I hope you will join me in whatever this journey may bring.

Update on PRF Events.

Posted by Jessica Singletary on March 20, 2009

At The Parker Reese Foundation we are always working to find ways to raise awareness for CDH and to raise money for research and we have come up with some great events to host in 2010. 2011 and 2012 that will all become annual events.  Some of the names you’ve heard before but with a CDH twist and others will be new altogether.  We are excited about what each of these fundraisers will mean for CDH families past, present and future.

Heels for Hope – March 2010 (North Carolina)

Hoops for Hope – April 2010 (North Carolina)

Round for Hope – October 2010 (Texas)

Blue Jean Ball – September 2011 (North Carolina)

Battle of the Bats – May 2012 (North Carolina)

We will have confirmed dates by the middle of next month for each of these events.  If any of you are interested in hosting these events in your home town please contact us at for more information.  Although we have spent and will continue to spend countless of hours on these events they do not belong to us.  We would be honored to have someone host an event for The Parker Reese Foundation to help raise money and awareness for CDH!

After 40 days at Duke University Medical Center…..

Posted by Jessica Singletary on March 16, 2009

Davis is at home!!!!  I have been waiting to post this but wanted his mom and dad to get the chance to post first on their blog.   We cannot express the joy we felt when Mike and Carolyn told us Davis was going home.  One day we believe that all CDH babies will go home due to the work we do at The Parker Reese Foundation.  Until then keep all the families diagnosed in your prayers.
