  1. He's Here

    Our son Jackson was born at 5:32pm on 11/12/13 at the Montreal Jewish General Hopsital. He weighed 8.7lbs. After being stabilized at this hospital he was transported to the Montreal Children's Hospital to the NICU where he was to be stabilized once more.

  3. CDH info for school enrolment

    Hi There
    I am enroling my 8 year old son in a new school. Although his CDH repair went well he has been left with health issues and I think that it would be benificial for his school to have some background info on CDH.

    Thanks in advance xx
