Did You Know? - Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia can strike any family.   It has hurt babies of all races and religions, in all countries around the world.   CDH has struck the poor and uneducated, but has also struck families of doctors, lawyers and even a U.S. Senator.   CDH does not discriminate.  The cause is unknown but geneticists are so very close to finding out why CDH happens.  Please vote and please support CDH research!   If your family hasn't been struck by CDH yet, someday it may be!

Meet Our Cherubs!  - Alfie was diagnosed at his 21 week scan with LCDH , he had a great out look and all the doctors were very pleased with his progress .

Alfie was born on the 15th of March 2011, his lungs were severely smaller than anticipated , but he fought and at 9 days old he had his operation to patch his diaphragm, the whole left side of his diaphragm was missing !

He continued to fight but on the 28th of March 2011 Alfie was too tired to fight and sadly grew his wings in his Mummy and Daddy's arms, this was due to severe pulmonary hypertension .

CDH has broke mine and my families hearts! It turn Alfies big sister Nicole's (8) world upside down!

It has been 3 months since my beautiful baby boy grew his wings, but in this short time the pain gets worse the longing to hold him just one last time or to say sorry that i could not save him!

At CHERUBS we are not a statistics we are part of a worldwide community a family filled with love and support !

Please vote, to help CHERUBS help other families like us !
