Our Mission

  MISSION STATEMENT:  CHERUBS was created to help families of babies born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia by providing support services, promoting research and raising awareness.

  Our only mission at CHERUBS is to help families affected by CDH by searching for the cause, prevention and best treatments of Congenital Diaphragmatic through research and awareness while supporting the CDH community. We focus on the whole CDH community, not personal motives or missions.

   We believe in supporting all CDH families, no matter the medical choices that they make for their children. Our mission is to provide accurate and timely information so that parents can make the best educated decisions for their babies. Our goal is to create and provide as many services as possible so that no CDH family feels alone. We have accomplished that for over 6100 CDH families.

   We believe in encouraging research into CDH and raising funds to help make that research happen. We don't talk about abstract CDH research in the future but actively pursue it through our CDH Research Survey and our Congressional Bill for CDH Research.

   We believe in everyone's right to raise Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness freely.

   Our mission is not let by the loss of one child, or one parent's desire to lead. It's a mission shared by 1000's of families for 1000's of CDH families. We are the CHERUBS - The ASSOCIATION of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Research, Awareness and Support.
