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.


Virtual event 

In 2021, we will host a virtual event on Sunday the 14th of November. Traditionally, we come together in person, but due to the pandemic we are going virtual so we can ensure that our event goes ahead, and our families can come together safely. 


Event packs 

Register by 19th of October to receive a free event pack containing sunflower themed items.

Due to the current parcel delays, event packs will be sent in October. You are very welcome to register and take part in our virtual event after this date, however you will not receive an event pack. We encourage everyone to join our theme and decorate your home with yellow colours and sunflowers to make the day special.

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.
