[p]The David Ashwell Foundation supports research into Alveolar Capillary Dysplasia ACD[/p][p]Alveolar Capillary Dysplasia is a very rare disease affecting the lungs of newborn babies. Babies with ACD may appear normal at birth but within minutes or hours they develop severe breathing difficulties. There is no treatment for ACD and as it is so rare, there has been little research into the devasting and usually fatal illness.[/p][p]In April 2015 Sarah and Jons son Seb was born. Seb became seriously ill and transferred to the PICU ward in Freemans Hospital in Newcastle where he was put on ECMO. Seb aged 7 days old passed away peacefully in his mams arms with his dad by his side from ACD.[/p][p]Funds raised by The David Ashwell Foundation are used to support researching into ACD.[/p][p]Since March 2011 The David Ashwell Foundation has raise over &pound140,000. The charity has funded two medical studies and will fund a further three studies in 2015.[/p][p]Please help us fund this and try to save lives.[/p][p]Thank you for your support.[/p]
