Children’s Miracle Network – Meet the Staff: Laura, NICU Nurse
Some of the staff at Christus Health Shreveport-Bossier, were once patients. Like, Laura, who is a nurse in the NICU.
Laura was born premature and went to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at CHRISTUS 27 years ago. Twenty-two years later when she finished nursing school she knew her calling was to work in the NICU.
Many of the women she works with now were in the NICU at the time of her birth. They helped her get her start in life and in nursing.
Laura is paying it forward to the NICU at Christus. And thanks to your donations as a Miracle Maker, the good work that saved Laura's life continues on.
“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.”
