Children’s Miracle Network – Meet the Kids: Evie
Evie is the only person with her diagnosis, but thanks to Children's Miracle Network, she is receiving the treatment she needs.
Evie has a very rare diagnosis, LCHAD (Long Chain Hydroxil # CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency) and Sensory Integration Disorder. She is the only person in Louisiana with LCHAD.
She lives each day with a demanding regime of nutritional goals, obstacles and challenges, but to look at her, she’s just another precocious preschooler! She will have to deal with this illness her entire life, but with her optimistic and enchanting personality, she’ll thrive and survive!
It's because of your donations as a Miracle Maker that children like Evie are able to get the treatment they need. Become one today for just $12 a month.
“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.”
