What Happens Inside

So many of us are lucky enough that we don’t really know what happens inside.

Inside the doors of a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

Our children haven’t needed their services yet.

But, they could.

I held my breath, watching this short video, imagining if it were my children inside those doors.

I’m thankful that places like this exist: for families who have needed them, like Heath’s family, whose story I shared with you a few weeks ago.

For anyone who might need them.

I’m asking that you help me with my #MiracleMoms campaign and donate what you can to help reach my goal of $1000 for Duke Children’s Hospital. Don’t forget that  you can also get your blog button on my homepage from now through the end of July for donating $25+: You can see details about that here.  But, any little bit helps- tweets and facebook shares are appreciated, too.

Donate here.

#MiracleMoms is a sponsored campaign. All opinions expressed are my own and all donations go to Children’s Miracle Network/Duke Children’s Hospital.

  1. Such an amazing cause Shell and oh the sounds of that hospital. Brings back lots of memories. So glad you are doing this.

  2. I’ve had some scary times in the hospital with my kids. No parent should ever have to see their child suffer. It’s wonderful that you are supporting this cause.

  3. Buster was in a Children’s Miracle Network hospital when he first starting having seizures.  They were amazing, and the CMN sponsored the parking fee for parents of the sick children, sponsored one meal, and also sponsored the toys the kids got to play with.  They are my favorite charity.

  5. When my Princess drowned we spent some anxious moments in Primary Children’s Hospital. Thank goodness they were able to bring her back to us. It’s a wonderful place.

  6. We were so blessed to have a children’s hospital to take JDaniel to when he fell last fall and got a gash that required stitches.

  8. I am really excited about this campaign. My son will have several more surgeries related to his cl/cp and potentially on his liver as well.

  10. Such a great cause. I, too, am so very thankful that our children have not needed the services of Children’s Miracle Network. However, both of my brothers have children who have. I have to say that they are a fantastic group! They go above and beyond of what anyone could ever expect of them.
