Did You Know? - Several genetic research centers are working towards finding the cause of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia and often share lab samples to help further each others' research.   CHERUBS is proud to work with the wonderful teams at Mass General, DHREAMS and Baylor to help search for the cause and prevention of CDH.   Interested in donated blood samples for research?  Go to for more information.

Meet Our Cherubs!  -  Little Rhett was born in December of 2010.   He was born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia and a Ventral hernia.  He holds his head independently.  Rhett is a special cherub because he is currently in an orphanage in the Ukraine.  We have 3 families willing to adopt Rhett here in the United States and make sure that his medical needs are met, as well as give him all the love he so deserves.  But international adoptions are expensive and none of these families have the $24,000 it takes to cover plane tickets, weeks in a hotel and the court costs, despite the help from wonderful non-profit Reese's Rainbow who will guide parents through the process.  If CHERUBS wins the Vivint Gives Back contest, $10,000 will go to Rhett's adoption fund to help bring him home to a loving family.
Thank you all for your support and your votes to help CDH babies!
