2009 National Children's Memorial Day

This week our web site home page is black in memory of those cherubs lost as we list every child in membership lost to CDH. It remain this way until December 14th. This is our solemn tribute to those cherubs with wings as well as our way to bring awareness to the many children lost to CDH.

The 2009 National Children's Memorial Day is Sunday, December 13th. At 7:00 pm in each time zone, people will be lighting candles to remember all children lost.

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.

CHERUBS has participated in NCMD for over a decade. We remember all the families who mourn their children from Congenital Diaphragmatic and those who mourn their children lost from other circumstances.

If you would like your cherub's name added or removed, please e-mail us at You *must* be a member of CHERUBS to be listed. You can join for free at

Members names will automatically be included. Please contact us if you do not want your cherub's name listed. Please make sure to have your membership form (profile) updated with your cherub's name and status if you have recently lost your cherubs.
