Children’s Miracle Network – Meet the Kids: Kayleigh
Kayleigh's mother drives over an hour to the Kids Clinic in Shreveport for her daughter's therapy.
Kayleigh was born at 25 weeks – that’s almost 4 months early. At 15 months old, Kayleigh started coming to the CHRISTUS Kids Clinic for Physical and Speech Therapy, to help with her growth and development.
Kayleigh’s mom, Cassie, was willing to drive over an hour each way for Kayleigh’s appointments, two to five times per week, because of the wonderful caring staff at The Kids Clinic.
Now, Kayleigh talks, walks and goes to school. She is a social butterfly who has a sharp wit and a great sense of humor!
“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.”
