Supporting the world's first and largest CDH non-profit organization

Oct 31, 2017

This year, the FAST (Rating & Trkg Svcs) team in Uniontown, Ohio continued their support for CHERUBS, the world's first and largest CDH non-profit organization

Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) occurs in approximately 1 in every 2,500 births (1,600 cases in the U.S. each year). The cause of CDH is not yet known. The diaphragm is formed in the first trimester of pregnancy and controls the lungs' ability to inhale and exhale. CDH occurs when the diaphragm fails to form or to close totally and an opening allows abdominal organs into the chest cavity. This inhibits lung growth.
