25 Years of CDH International – 2015

Our 20th Anniversary! We celebrated with a dinner at the President’s home in North Carolina, followed by a night time balloon release featuring the names of 1000’s of cherubs.

We raised our first $1 million, won President George Bush’s Point of Light award, presented our research abstract at the CDH Study Group conference in Toronto and much more. It was a wonderful year to celebrate!
