"I can't imagine how we could have managed, or even survived the last 20 years without CHERUBS. I have made life long long friends, who in all honesty are in many ways more like family than my blood relations are. Our children, our CHERUBS families are so dear to us, they hold a special place in our hearts, always."- Heidi Forney

"CHERUBS has brought so many loving people into my life. They understand how I feel. They know what it's like to watch your child fight. They're more then just friends, they're family." - Brandy Hawkins

........................ ......................................................................... ..........................................................................

"We have truly enjoyed being involved in Cherubs over the years. I have been able to attend two conferences where I met wonderful parents of other CDH kids and made lifelong friends. My favorite memories are of the CDH Awareness walks in DC. There is no other group that does so much to advance the cause of CDH kidsand their families."- Mary Abigail Reinhardt

"CHERUBS has been awesome to support us on our CDH journey! Even though we weren't members until long after our first CDH diagnosis, the support we've received since joining has been amazing. We have been able to connect with so many other families and share our successes and grief. We've also been able to offer support to so many other families. Without CHERUBS our CDH world, and the CDH world in general would be a lot darker!" - Josh Hensley

"The same day that we got the diagnosis that Vivienne had CDH I was was doing research online and discovered CHERUBS. A few weeks later we received the care package, with items donated by parents in honor/memory of their children. A lot of that stuff ended up being very useful, but even more than that, just feeling like part of a community of people who understand what you are going through was really great." - Allison Moore
