|Visiting Our Son Who Was Born with Pneumonia in the NICU and Now, Almost Eight Years Later!|
I hear stories everyday that take my breath away such as the Story of Katie (not a patient of mine but a patient from Children's Miracle Network in Florida):
Two years before her diagnosis with bone cancer, Katie hung a quote she’d written: “What great thing does it do to the world when we help ourselves instead of others?” Years later, Katie would prove her dedication to uplifting others.
Looking at her, you’d never know Katie is one of a few patients in the world to have a radical limb salvage surgery ending with a prosthetic inside her leg. Nobody wishes for a life-threatening illness, but Katie says cancer was a blessing that inspired her to help others.
Now cancer-free, Katie has organized her own nonprofit to provide monogrammed blankets, chemotherapy distraction toys and services for kids who lose their hair. She also started a “September is Golden” initiative during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month to fundraise at local schools. Katie’s ability to articulate her journey, paired with countless media interviews and speaking opportunities, has motivated many to help kids in need.
I am passionate about this organization because of the wonderful things they do for children and families in their greatest time of need. By supporting the Children's Miracle Network you are helping provide 32 million patient visits for 10 million kids each year! Some facts you may not know are:
- One in Ten Kids (like my own son) in North America Use a Children's Miracle Network Hospital Yearly.
- Every Year Member Hospitals Treat 16,000 Children in Their ERs.
- Every Hour, Member Hospitals Provide Surgery to 97 Children!
- U.S. Member Hospitals Provided $3.4 Billion in Charity Care in 2012.
