6th Annual Cadan’s Carnival For CDH Awareness Taking Place at Quincy Knights of Columbus – an Interview With Tiffany Frericks

The 6th annual Cadan's Carnival Halloween event will take place October 19 at the Quincy Knights of Columbus. The carnival is held in memory of Cadan Christopher Frericks, son of Tiffany and Rome Frericks, who passed away only weeks after his birth due to complications from Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH), a birth defect where the diaphragm does not properly form, allowing the abdominal organs to move up into the chest. The carnival is held in Cadan's honor, and raises awareness of CDH and funds for CDH research. Cadan's mom, Tiffany, was kind enough to give us a few moments of her time for an interview.
