In 1995, two determined mothers founded a charity with a simple yet profound mission: to support the families of babies born with the severe birth defect Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). At that time, information and support for CDH were scarce, leaving families feeling isolated and alone. Their heartfelt dedication led to the birth of the charity, which took a significant leap forward with the advent of the internet in 1997. Since then, it has evolved into the world’s largest CDH charity, making a tremendous impact in the lives of CDH patients and their families.

Over the past 24 years, this organization has provided crucial assistance to more than 6,300 patients across 70 countries. While this number is substantial, it represents only a fraction of the actual patients and families affected by CDH. Shockingly, over 300,000 babies have been born with CDH since the year 2000, highlighting the urgent need for continued support and research.

Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) is a complex birth defect that occurs when a baby’s diaphragm fails to fully form, allowing abdominal organs to enter the chest cavity. Surgery is essential for survival, but unfortunately, only half of these children survive in the United States. The survival rate is even lower, less than 1%, in Third World countries. Despite its prevalence, CDH remains underfunded in research and often lacks awareness compared to other conditions with similar occurrence rates, such as Spina Bifida and Cystic Fibrosis.

However, there is hope on the horizon. The organization is making significant strides in narrowing down the gene responsible for CDH, a crucial step towards proving its genetic basis. Once confirmed, the focus will shift to gene therapy, aiming to prevent this devastating condition from affecting future generations.

CDH is far from rare, with a baby born with the condition every 10 minutes worldwide. The urgency to raise awareness, support families, and drive research forward is clear, and the charity’s unwavering dedication is paramount in this endeavor.

Together, we can make a difference by joining forces to combat Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia and provide hope, support, and brighter futures for CDH patients and their families
