40 States and the U.S. Senate proclaim awareness for little known birth defect that strikes 100’s of babies each year in the United States.

WAKE FOREST, NC (April 15, 2014) – It’s been a whirlwind few years for grassroots charity, CHERUBS, in their quest to raise awareness of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.

Since the first small event on April 19th, a parade in Raleigh, North Carolina in 2011, the organization’s efforts have grown exponentially with other charity members of the Alliance of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Organizations (ACDHO).   In 2012 and 2013, families descended upon Capitol Hill to meet with Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), who along with Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD), have sponsored Resolutions to make April “Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Month”.   On April 7, 2014, once again the Senate unanimously approved a Resolution for CDH Awareness with the passing of S. Res. 144.

On CDH Awareness Day, April 19th, CDH International interviewed families, researchers, doctors and volunteers as they all shared stories, tears and trials as we raised awareness and money for Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia via live video on Facebook.  We had guests live from around the globe, truly an international day of CDH Awarneess.  The goal was to reach $50,000 over 15 hours during a live Facebook telethon.  Donors were able to make a donation by calling in, donating on any of the member's Facebook telethon fundraisers or directly on the website.  As the telethon closed, CDH International surpassed the goal bringing in $51,388.  This number is on the rise, where the final total will be announced on April 30th.  Facebook fundraisers for the telethon are still ongoing and the charity waits for any checks arriving by mail.
