We are so thrilled to be attending The Incredible Teddy Foundation’s 5th Annual Fundraiser this Friday, an event we haven’t missed since meeting little Teddy 3 years ago. This tough little guy was born in 2010 and was diagnosed with something known as congenital diaphragmatic hernia, a life threatening condition that is characterized by the underdevelopment of the diaphram in utero. It can range from mild to severe and for Teddy, this meant 8 weeks of hospitalization after his birth. The National survival rate for babies born with CDH is about 50%. Since then, Teddy has flourished but his friends and family wanted to do something to help other families with babies diagnosed with CDH and founded the Incredible Teddy Foundation. The proceeds from their Annual Fundraiser go directly to their ‘Home Away from Home Fund’, an endowment at Boston Children’s Hospital to help cover the cost of housing for families during this unexpected and difficult time.
Some of the auction items on Friday include a party for 12 at Cantina Restaurant, a day at the races next summer in an owner’s box, a Burton snowboard, and SO much more (check out the photos from last year's party over here) To come and enjoy your Friday night with the Incredible Teddy, get your tickets right here!
