CDH Sunflower Sunday is the annual awareness day for the only Australian charity dedicated to supporting children and families affected by the rare birth condition, congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH).
CDH means being born with a hole in the diaphragm and this week 2 families will receive a CDH diagnosis for their child.
The fatality rate is 50%. Families are shattered by the loss of their child. CDH survivors face ongoing health complications. Emotional support is vital.
For a family receiving a CDH diagnosis, fear and anxiety can be overwhelming.
CDH Australia provides education, support and a community to share knowledge and experience.
Here are some examples of how we use fundraising dollars:
Telephone support when a family first receives a CDH diagnosis
Foster an online community and support groups for families affected by CDH
Host an Annual Forum for CDH families and medical professionals to share knowledge
Deliver essential training to our support service volunteers
Produce and distribute CDH information booklets
Develop and send care packages to CDH families
Provide financial assistance to help CDH families cover unexpected hospitals costs
Fund vital medical research
Thank you for supporting the CDH community.
