Team Sofie and Team MJ

We are thrilled to be teaming up with Team Sofie again for this year's CDH Awareness Blood Drive. Check out everything that Sofie has been up to at

Last year was such a success that we had to raise the bar for this year. If you remember, the goal last year was to get 30 people to donate blood and we ended up getting 41 donors! This year we raised the goal to 50 donors and I am confident that we can meet that goal. One reason I am so confident is that we added another CDH family to host with us this year. MJ's family will be taking part in this year's blood drive.

MJ fought very hard to beat CDH, but after 35 days he earned his wings. MJ's twin brother Will is a healthy little boy and we can't wait to meet him. Learn more about MJ and everything his parent's are doing to honor his memory at

Please help us spread awareness for CDH and donate blood by attending the 3rd Annual CDH Awareness Blood Drive. Kinley, Sofie and MJ required many blood transfusions while at Children's Mercy Hospital, especially while on ECMO. Even if your blood does not directly go to a baby with CDH it will still be helping someone in need.
