I am the mom to an 8 year old CDH survivor. I have been a member of CHERUBS since she was born, started serving on committees approximately 5 years ago, and have been a member of the board for almost 3 years. I served as the Treasurer for CHERUBS for about 2 years, and then moved to the role of Vice-President about a year ago. Through volunteering in these roles, I have had an inside view of CHERUBS for many years and am aware of all facets of the charity- the volunteers, the members of all 3 boards, and the finances. I am proud to say that CHERUBS is run by a team of wonderfully dedicated volunteers led by the charity's sole employee, the President of CHERUBS, Dawn Williamson. It takes a lot of hours, and people from many areas of the world, and with many talents to serve the CDH community. All of the volunteers that I have come in contact with from State Representatives, to Hospital Angels, to those who work on the various committees, to the Parent Advisory Board, and the Executive Board serve dutifully with professionalism and respect to see that families get the help they need while working to raise awareness of CDH and money to further research that is so desperately needed. From my role as Treasurer, and with continued knowledge of the finances of the charity as an executive board member, I can assure you that every donated dollar is used to the best of its ability to help the cause. Meticulous care is taken to see that donations are spent only in the manner with which the donor specifies (research, family assistance, awareness, etc.), and that money is never wasted. I am proud to count myself as a member of the CHERUBS team.
Cherubs helps families all around the world. CDH is a birth defect that is so unknown families have to search for information. Cherubs provides a safe, knowledgeable and caring environment for families to share their experiences and support each other. Cherubs does so much with so little funding. Every year my CDH'er does a walk to raise funds to donate to Cherubs for CDH research. I am proud to be a volunteer for Cherubs!
Cherubs is an amazing support group that has helped me connect with many other CDH families. Full of wonderful people who are there to help you through the hard times and share in the joyful moments too!
I am a CDH mom and I volunteer for CHERUBS. I am proud of the work being done at CHERUBS and the transparency of the charity. I know that I am helping people through their journey because others helped me through ours. Thank you CHERUBS for being such a great charity.
We love the cherubs!! They have help my family out in so many ways when I found out my daughter would be born with CDH
Love them and the work they do fro CDH families! I have been blessed to see a local family helped with the CDH journey of their angel, who was here for 12 days.
This charity supported my family and I through the loss of my son. It is filled with amazing supportive people. They have given us opportunities to raise awareness about a horrible birth defect that many do not know about as well as allow us to participate and be a part of the family.
After losing my son to CDH, CHERUBS had been there in every way possible to love, support and educate me.
CHERUBS has served as a source of knowledge, support, kindness and compassion through our CDH with our son, Jacob. I couldn't have asked for anything more than what they were already offering to CDH families. They are wonderful and I am PROUD to say "My son is a CHERUB". They have all become extended famliy to us even though Jacob grew his wings at 33 minutes old.
Cherubs has given me the opportunity to fulfill a promise to my daughter that I made to her as she was dying in my arms; the promise to continue to fight for her as I knew she couldn't fight anymore. They have paved the way to join a movement of strong brave courageous parents and children that live the unimaginable. I am deeply grateful for this organization and everything they do.
My daughter is a 28 year old survivor and I wish we had ha CHERUBS when she was born. We were alone in our journey. When she had to have surgery several years ago for a vowel obstruction related to her CDH diagnosis, we found CHERUBS. This is not just a charity. This is a family where there is so much information, compassion, love and prayers for all. My daughter and I now volunteer for CHERUBS. I am just so thankful they are there so no family will ever walk this journey alone again.
There was no CHERUBS when mydaughterwas born in 1986. We found CHERUBS a few years ago when I was researching adults with CDH. This is when I found CHERUBS. We have learned more since finding other families through CHERUBS than adult family practice doctors ever knew. Thank you all!!!! Love our CHERUBS!!!
