What is Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH)???

  • CDH occurs in the beginning stages of development (about 9-10 weeks gestation) when the diaphragm does not completely close, allowing the abdominal organs to fill the chest cavity inhibiting the growth of the lungs.
  • Occurs: 1 in 2500
  • Affects almost 1,700 babies in the US each year
  • Every 10 minutes a baby is born with CDH (that is 6 every hour)
  • 50% of these babies don't survive
  • CDH is as common as cystic fibrosis and spina bifida, yet there is very little research and even less funding
  • CDH occurs in all races, ethnicity, ages and socio-economical statuses. 


 We support several organizations including CHERUBS. We just ask that if you choose to donate to CHERUBS or anyone else, that you please include Olivia Faith's name in honor or memory of her. Thank you.

~About Olivia~

Olivia Faith was diagnosed with CDH at her 20 week ultrasound. While still in the womb she survived a surgery that would give her poorly developing lungs a chance to grow. She was born on October 28, 2011 and had surgery to repair her diaphragm at 1 week old.  After 7 weeks in the NICU, with Mommy and Daddy by her side, she passed into eternal life on December 18th 2011.
