Please Support "Real Hope for CDH" in the Chase Community Giving Contest!

Chase Community Giving is awarding more money to deserving charities again this year!!!   We were proud to be a part of the competition last year and place fairly well thanks to the support of the CDH community!!!

This year for some reason several CDH charities were not included into the contest.  We contacted Chase but they are not adding anyone else to this particular competition.   :(

But that's ok because there is another WONDERFUL CDH charity that is in the contest!   They are fellow members of the Alliance of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Organizations and they are very dedicated, professional and worthy charity!  We are proud to throw all of our support behind Real Hope for CDH and hope that the entire CDH community does so as well!

Voting will start on June 15th!

"Real Hope for CDH is a parent group consisting of and dedicated to families of children born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernias (CDH). Members' babies were either born at Shands Children's Hospital at the University of Florida or transported there shortly after birth. All of these babies were fortunate enough to have been treated by pediatric surgeon Dr. David Kays."

You may have heard of "Kays Kids" as Real Hope for CDH was once called before they changed their name several years ago.  They were the first charity to bring "hope" to the CDH community.

CHERUBS has been lucky enough to work with Dr. Kays and this group for a very long time.    They are a wonderful organization and we are proud to support their work and hope you will too!

DISCLAIMER:   CHERUBS cannot and does not promote any particular hospital or surgeon.   Nor are we publicly endorsing a survival rate because EVERY CHERUB IS DIFFERENT!   We are promoting the good work done by this wonderful charity to raise funds and support for Shands and the patients of Dr. Kays!  :)
