Children’s Miracle Network – Meet the Kids: Joshua, CMN Champion
Joshua has been through a lot in his life, but he's the sweetest kid you'll ever meet.
Joshua was two months old when he was first hospitalized. Joshua has Sickle Cell Anemia diagnosis, and even at his worst, during an acute pain crisis he still remains a kind, sweet, well-mannered and fun loving kid.
Although, Joshua is admitted to the hospital frequently, he remains in good spirits throughout his hospital stays. Joshua has recently been diagnosed with Scoliosis.
Joshua is our Children's Miracle Network Champion, meaning he is our ambassador for Shreveport-Bossier. He gets to travel all over sharing the good news that is CMN. As a Miracle Maker, your $12 a month helps keep Joshua in high spirits.
“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.”
