Raising Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness, Supporting Families with Information and Friendship, and Advocating for more CDH Research

CHERUBS was founded in 1995 to support families of children born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) and to increase awareness, research possible causes and better treatments for CDH.

Currently, CHERUBS website has over 4500 members in 60 countries and all 50 states. CHERUBS is an IRS approved 501(c)III organization.

CDH is a devastating birth defect, affecting 1 in every 2500 babies. It occurs when the diaphragm fails to fully form, allowing the abdominal organs to enter the chest cavity and prevent lung growth. CDH has a 50% survival rate. The cause is not known.
