2014 National Children's Memorial Day

We remembered the following cherubs and their families this National Children's Memorial Day:


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.


New Funeral Assistance Fund

We have started a fund to help families bury their cherubs.
