Amber is a mother to three children, oldest son Kayden, daughter Isla and youngest son Rylan born in 2022. Rylan was diagnosed with left sided CDH at the 20 week scan where a unrelated chromosomal abnormality was found. Amber and her family had never heard of CDH before and didn’t know what to expect. Rylan underwent surgery at 5 days old at the Centenary Hospital for Women and children in Canberra by surgeon Dr Rajay Rampersad and his incredible team.
Amber joined CDH Australia as her and her family received a tremendous amount of support throughout their CDH journey. Amber hopes to give back and help and support the families with the same diagnosis ensuring that no family faces CDH alone.
Outside of CDH, Amber is a stay at home mum. She lives a busy life with her crazy family whom enjoys being outdoors, walking their dogs Millie and rescue dog Bundy and spending time with family and friends.
