Featured CDH International’s Connecticut Ambassador is Reynaldo Sanchez. Reynaldo is the father to CDH angel Alexis “AJ.”
Reynaldo Sanchez who goes by the name Alexis was born and raised in Bridgeport, CT, but now calls Ansonia, CT, home. He landed his first job at the prestigious Greenwich country club at only 16 years old. Where he was a caddie and bag shop room attendant. He then left the Greenwich country club at 18 to help his father with the launch of his first family business in the automotive industry. Alexis always had a passion for driving and decided to leave the family business and get into trucking. He now drives full time for Boars Head. He absolutely loves working for Boars head and has been working for them for over 3 years now. He enjoys playing video games, fine dinning, playing poker, amusement parks and loves to watch and play football, soccer and golf. He also has a beautiful 6 year old daughter named Kaylin. CDH has left a long lasting impact in his life because his first born son AJ was born with CDH and unfortunately passed a way a month after birth. He continues to raise awareness about CDH through social media and by attending a Yale sponsored gathering where parents either expecting a child with a rare serious condition or parents that have a child with a rare condition and share his experience with them.
Reynaldo has been happily married to his wife Kiara for over 8 years and they have 3 beautiful kids together Kaylin, AJ and Lex. Their rainbow baby was born 11/18/19 and they decided not to know the sex, so they were surprised at birth with a beautiful healthy baby boy that they decided to name Lex Rey Sanchez. Both him and Kiara are also making a contribution to the hospital where AJ was born that will go directly to parents that have a child in the NICU at Yale New Haven Hospital.
