► CHERUBS – The Association of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Research, Awareness and Support
Every 10 minutes a child is born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH), a devastating birth defect that has no known cause. Half of those born with CDH will die, and many of those that survive will have life long medical challenges.

► The Marfan Foundation
Marfan syndrome is a genetic disorder that affects the body’s connective tissue. About 1 in 5,000 people have Marfan syndrome and half don’t know it. Marfan syndrome is a life-threatening genetic disorder, and an early, accurate diagnosis is essential, not only for people with Marfan syndrome, but also for those with related disorders. Without it, they can be at risk for potentially life-threatening complications. The earlier some treatments are started, the better the outcomes are likely to be. Knowing the signs of these conditions can save lives.
“Know the signs. Fight for victory.”
