For the third year in a row, Rotary Ridderkerk - de Waal organised a golf tournament, dinner and auction to raise research funds for children with congenital diaphragmatic hernia. The patient organization “Platform CHD”, represented by Wichard Hulsbergen at the event, introduced the disease to the participants from a parent’s perspective.
At Radboudumc, Sanne Botden, Ivo de Blaauw (both Pediatric Surgery) and Willeke Daamen (Biochemistry), theme Reconstructive and regenerative medicine, are developing improved biomaterials and treatment modalities for children with this congenital birth defect. At the end of the day, a cheque worth € 51,000 was handed over to Sanne Botden and Willeke Daamen.
