Children’s Miracle Network ‘Meet the Kids Monday’ : Breanne [PHOTO]
Let's meet Breanne. She's one of the wonderful children you'll be helping as a part of "The Miracle Makers Radiothon" March 26 and 27.
We have partnered with the wonderful Children's Miracle Network to help out the two Christus Health locations in Shreveport-Bossier. The beautiful thing about Children's Miracle Network is that no child or family is ever turned way.
For those of you unfamiliar with the national organization, their goal is to help children's hospitals and families across the country. The money can virtually be used for anything, whether it be hospital bills, transportation, child care, equipment, or anything else that can help these kids get healthy and help their families throughout the process. The money is also used for school programs or the School Based Health Center at Woodlawn Academy, for example.
Here's the best part. Anything donated to Children's Miracle Network in Shreveport-Bossier, will stay in Shreveport-Bossier and benefit families in our own backyard.
We'll be hosting "The Miracle Makers Radiothon" March 26 and 27, so why not meet some of the kids and families you will be helping out. This week, we shed the light on Breanne.
5 Years Old
Breanne Cain always had problems with her ears and when she was 5, she developed slight hearing loss due to fluid buildup behind her eardrum that required surgery at CHRISTUS Highland. Surgery can be very stressful and scary for kids and their parents. Thankfully, CHRISTUS Health Shreveport-Bossier provides Certified Child Life Specialists who are trained professionals with expertise in helping children and their families cope with the stress and uncertainty of any hospital stay. Breanne’s mom, Kelly, felt so relieved knowing that someone was by her little girl’s side when she couldn’t be.
"Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion—most of it $1 at a time—for 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
Our mission: We increase funds and awareness for local children’s hospitals.
Our vision: Together we save kids’ lives.
Right now there’s a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital working to save the lives of kids in your community. In fact, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute — that's one child every second. Some are battling cancer. Some are suffering from a traumatic injury. Others require constant care because they were born too early, or with a genetic disease. Regardless of why the kids are there, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals always have their doors open."
