Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Ribbon -

Official Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Ribbon

Congenital DIaphragmatic Hernia Awareness RibbonThe official CDH Awareness Ribbon is recognized in 38 countries and all 50 states and by many non-profit organizations, groups and hospitals.   It was voted on by CDH parents, is trademark and copyright free and is not used by any other cause.  

The Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Ribbon is as unique as the babies born with CDH.  The awareness colors for birth defects are pink and baby blue, so they were incorporated into our ribbon.   The official Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Ribbon is pink, baby blue and light yellow, with white clouds to represent the 50% of babies born with CDH who do not survive.  It is original, not used by and doesn't infringe upon any other cause - yet, it also signifies that CDH is a birth defect. The baby colors truly keep the meaning of the cause - helping CDH babies - close to heart.

Christian LeRoy RayThis is the Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Ribbon recognized by the members of the Alliance of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Organizations. Is it recognized by CHERUBS, the world's first and largest CDH organization with over 3000 members in 38 countries. It is the ribbon associated with the Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Research Study and the CDH Research Congressional Bill.   Wikipedia recognizes this ribbon. There is even a postage stamp with this ribbon, created February 12, 2008.  Not to mention 1000's of items with this ribbon available on our stores and various other sites.

If you have a child born with CDH, make sure to request a free personalized Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Ribbon.

CDH Awareness Ribbons

Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia

Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) occurs when the diaphragm fails to fully form, allowing abdominal organs to move into the chest cavity and preventing the lungs from having enough room to grow. CDH occurs in 1 in every 2500 babies. 1600 babies in the US every year. Over a half million babies around the world since 2000. Every 10 minutes a baby is born with CDH.

CDH is as common as Cystic Fibrosis and Spina Bifida but there is little research and awareness and virtually no media coverage.   At CHERUBS, e are working hard to change that.

Babies born with CDH undergo surgeries and long hospitalizations. 50% of babies born with CDH do not survive. The cause is not known.

Please join us in learning about CDH and raising awareness so that more research may be done and more babies saved.
