$1 MILLION for Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia

CHERUBS is celebrating 20 years by hitting the $1 MILLION mark for CDH!  

For two decades we have been raising CDH Awareness, funding research and providing free support services to families affected by Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.

We are very proud to announce that we are extremely close to having raised almost $1,000,000 for our cause!

This is 1 million dollars that has paid for care packages for newborns, events for families to meet other families and learn more about CDH, research grants to hospitals, awareness projects and much, much more over the past 20 years.  Every single penny has gone to further our goal of helping families while ending CDH.

This is possible because of donors and supporters, families and friends, working together to help combat Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia by supporting our fundraisers, making donations, holding fundraisers of their own in memory and in honor of children who have fought CDH.

20 years ago, there was nothing for families struck by CDH.  Now, there is a tremendous amount of support services, research funding and participating and international awareness thanks the group effort of everyone at our charity!   CDH families are no longer alone.

We ask you to help us cross that finish line by donating, fundraising, creating a Firstgiving page and let's reach that $1,000,000 mark together!
