We would like to thank Dr. C. Jason Smithers, MD, with Boston Children’s Hospital for Bringing Hope Around the World to our CDH families.
Anthony Croce, dad to cherub Jordan, had this to say about Dr. Smithers:
“I would like to give tribute to Children’s Hospital of Boston. We found out 6 months along that our daughter, Jordan, had LCDH. Dr. Smithers and his medical team were our family’s saving grace. They went above and beyond to explain not only what was going on but to ensure us our baby girl was going to be in wonderful hands. Here we are 5 years later and our baby girl is starting kindergarten and you would never know the rough start she had. Our family feels like we will always be in debt to Dr. Smithers and his team.”
