Max Richard Thornsbury Foundation
August 8, 2013

Our charity had the honor of being able to support Max's family after his diagnosis with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia and are thrilled to see them carry on his memory in the good work they are doing through the Max Richard Thornsbury Foundation. We are excited to see all the wonderful things that they will do in Ohio for CDH families and to fund research and are proud to sponsor some of their events.

We are proud to be members of the Alliance of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Organization with such a wonderful foundation and look forward to working with them for many years to help families affected by CDH.

Olivia Raine Foundation
August 8, 2013

Our charity has worked with Olivia's family for many years and were thrilled when they decided to start a foundation in her memory to help families cover funeral costs.

Over the years or so we have worked with them to find help for several families who lost their babies to CDH. Kim has always been very quick to respond and to offer help or information where available even though most requests are not local to their foundation.

We are proud to be members of the Alliance of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Organization with such an incredible and compassionate foundation and look forward to working with them for many more years to help families affected by CDH.

Olivia Faith Foundation Inc.
August 8, 2013

Our charity has worked with Olivia's family for quite some time and were thrilled when they decided to start a foundation in her memory. Over the past year or so we have worked with them on several projects, from funding to help a grieving family to marching on Capitol Hill to telling the world about CDH on the International Day of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness on April 19th. Their professionalism, compassion for families and drive to create a CDH community that works together for all the children is outstanding.

We are proud to be members of the Alliance of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Organization with such an incredible and compassionate foundation and look forward to working with them for many more years to help families affected by CDH.

CHERUBS - The Association of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Research
April 29, 2011

CHERUBS mission is solely to help babies born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia and their families through research, awareness and support services. For 16 years we have provided free services to make the journey of CDH a little easier for 1000's of families around the world.

CHERUBS is a public 501(c)III non-profit organization run by caring parents, grandparents and survivors with a medical advisory committee composed of the leaders of CDH Research. Our members and volunteers have hearts of gold and work as a team putting the big picture of helping all CDH babies first.

We are run as a charity - with the heart of a charity. All donations go to further our services, all of our services and project go to help these babies. We never trademark or copyright, we promote CDH Awareness rather than our own branding, we have never spent a penny in legal fees, we work with other charities and organizations, we support all families and have helped many other CDH charities get started directly and indirectly. Our focus is the always, always the babies and families.

It is this open-hearted outlook and determination that has made us the world's first, largest and most active CDH charity and that has made us successful in helping families.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I am the President and Founder, founding the charity in 1995 when my own CDH child was 2 years old. I was alone in dealing with CDH and didn't want any other parent to go through this without information and support. CHERUBS is named for all children lost to CDH, is not created in honor/memory of any specific child and was created on a foundation of compassion, kindness and sincere desire to help others.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

More volunteers, more funding, more services!
