CDH Support

    Dealing with CDH is hard. It changes our lives forever. Grieving families mourn always. Families of survivors struggle and grieve over the loss of dreams. Family and friends aren't quite sure what to do. CHERUBS is run by volunteers - parents, grandparents, survivors and medical care providers who have personally dealt with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. We haven't read it in a book or on a blog - we have personally lived it and when we say that we understand, we truly do.

Featured Cherub: Steven Hilario Lagunas

Featured cherub of the week is Steven Hilario Lagunas. He is the son of Berenice and Steven Lagunas. He fought so hard for 6 months, a warrior in every sense of the word.  From Steven's GoFundMe page, "Steven was a beautiful boy with a personality that shines brighter than the sun. His smile and his long eyelashes stole everyone’s heart. He smiled regardless of what he was going through. He truly is the strongest little boy we knew. Although our time with him was cut short he will be incredibly missed and loved forever. The time spent with him will forever be cherished."
