CDH Awareness Night at Applebee's - Fresno, CA

Join us at Applebee's on CDH Awareness Night to raise money and awareness for babies born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.

 

 

April 19th is the International Day of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness.

CDH is a birth defect that strikes 1600 babies every year in the U.S., taking the lives of 800 of these children.  It occurs when a baby's diaphragm fails to properly form, allowing abdominal organs to enter the chest cavity and inhibiting lung growth.

Print a flier and bring it in to have dinner at one of the participating Applebee's Restaurants and they will donate up to 20% to CHERUBS!

We would like to thank Dr. Kamlesh S. Macwan, MD, and RN’s Kristin Aigner and Lora Simonson with OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria, Illinois, for Bringing Hope Around the World to our CDH Families! This wonderful doctor and nurses were brought to our attention by Terry King German, mom to cherub Skylar, “we can NEVER thank these angels on earth enough for saving the life of our sweet miracle, Skylar!!!!”

Dr. Macwan was known to many as the “magician of ventilators and the Yoda of CDH.”  CDH families and various OSF Staff recently said goodbye to Dr. Macwan at the CDH Family Picnic in September and celebrated his retirement.
