Mission:

Our only mission at CHERUBS is to help families affected by CDH by searching for the cause, prevention and best treatments of Congenital Diaphragmatic through research and awareness while supporting the CDH community. We focus on the whole CDH community, not personal motives or missions. We believe in supporting all CDH families, no matter the medical choices that they make for their children. Our mission is to provide accurate and timely information so that parents can make the best educated decisions for their babies. Our goal is to create and provide as many services as possible so that no CDH family feels alone. We have accomplished that for over 4400 CDH families.

Our LCDH survivor is 2 now. Cherubs helped so much. Finding support and information in a time of fear was such a blessing.

My son was born with CDH and this charity welcomed us and made us feel like we had answers, support and someone we could go to just to listen in a very tough time. They sent us a care kit with a handmade hat and adjusted baby's first book to explain the time he had in the nicu. It's thoughtful things like that that make this charity above all others!

Without Cherubs this journey would be so much harder. I learned most of it I know today about CDH because of Cherubs.

They have been so caring and supportive since our daughter was born with undiagnosed CDH. They sent a totebag with goodies for us and EK while she was in the hospital. The most in depth information I was able to find while after our daughter was born!

The tote bag project is amazing for expectant mothers. Such a relief to have a community to connect with while going through pregnancy and life with a CDH child. We also received a financial grant that really helped with the cost of making a daily 200 mile commute to see our child.

I love CHERUBS and would be lost with out them! It's nice to connect with families that understand what you are going through and who can share their experience. I had never heard of CDH until the day my son was born and the NICU doctor told me he was born with this birth defect. I love that they are taking ACTION raising awareness and funds for more research. CHERUBS has made the scariest times of our life much easier with the volunteers support and love! We will be forever grateful!
