As we reflect back on all of our accomplishments, we also remember all the children born with CDH during the past year and prepare for all the babies to be born with CDH in 2015.

National Children's Memorial Day 2014

 
Candles will be lit at 7:00 pm in all time zones so that there will be constant light around the world in memory of our children in Heaven.
 
The 2014 National Children's Memorial Day is Sunday, December 14th. At 7:00 pm in each time zone, people will be lighting candles to remember all children lost.

The World Census Bureau estimates that in 2008 over 350,000 babies were born in the world every day = 147 babies will be born with CDH every day. That is OVER 53,000 BABIES BORN EACH YEAR WITH CDH. Over 26,000 do not survive. Help CHERUBS fight CDH.

Over a half million babies have been affected by Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia since 2000. This means that over a quarter of a million babies have have been lost to this devastating birth defect. Over 800 babies are lost to CDH in the United States alone each year.
