CDH awareness 

Our annual awareness event aims to build community support and to raise the profile of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. CDH Sunflower Sunday is a beautiful and free event with one key goal: to ensure no family faces CDH alone.

Ideas for taking part at home


  • Prepare a delicious sunflower themed picnic
  • Make yellow cupcakes for morning tea
  • Host a virtual video lunch with friends and family
  • Go on a CDH Awareness walk in your neighbourhood
  • Use face paints to decorate your family with sunflowers
  • Share photos on social media using #cdhsfs
  • Fundraise to raise awareness and funds for the CDH community

Raise funds and raise CDH awareness at the same time!


During the event registration process, please opt in to create a fundraising page for your family.

Fundraising ensures we can continue to support families affected by Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia across Australia.

Your help to encourage donations makes a big difference and also provides a fantastic way for you to raise awareness about CDH with your friends, family and colleagues.


Fundraising and donations help us to fund medical research, delivery support services, publish the website, create educational content, facilitate events, and provide hope. 

The symbolic sunflower 


For CDH families, the sunflower inspires hope, warmth and strength. 


Sunflowers hold different meanings in different cultures. For example, in Greek mythology it is the symbol of the water nymph Clytie, who after grieving the loss of her love Apollo, turns into a sunflower whose face always follows the sun.


For us, sunflowers inspire hope after a period of darkness; of finding light.
