2011 Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Cherubs
900 photos of children and adults born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH), a birth defect that affects over 1600 babies every year in the United States. CDH occurs when the diaphragm fails to fully form, allowing abdominal organs into the chest cavity and preventing lung growth. 50% of babies born with CDH do not survive. The cause is not known.
"Cherub" by Matt Panetta, in honor of his brother, cherub Jonathan Panetta.
"I'll Never Let You Go" by The Jammies. Written by Chad Knudsen in honor of his son, a CDH survivor.
