Newsroom Miracle Week set for Nov. 27 to Dec. 3 Posted on Nov. 20, 2023 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at CoxHealth makes a difference for local kids and families every single day of the year. During the last week of November, it is a special time to make an impact through Miracle Week: an opportunity for individuals to donate funds that provide medical care and assistance when they’re needed most.“Miracle Week is special for us every year because it provides a wonderful opportunity to share stories from local patients who were directly impacted by the generosity of donors,” says Tim Siebert, executive director of CMN Hospitals at CoxHealth. “The donations made during Miracle Week support children and families at all stages of their care journey. We want to do all we can to help ease these and other health related burdens so local children can thrive.”In 2023, Miracle Week runs from Nov. 27 to Dec. 3. Donations support many efforts including:Special Needs Fund, which offers direct financial assistance for special medical needs that are not covered by private insurance or Medicaid. This includes prosthetics, wheelchairs, leg braces, hearing aids, prescriptions travel expenses for out-of-town doctor’s appointments and other needs.Family Care Grants, which provide financial assistance for families whose children have been hospitalized or need specialized therapy.Educational programs including Wasted, an anti-drinking and driving campaign; Never Shake a Baby, to prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome; and CARDIAC Kids, a program that identifies area children at risk for developing heart disease or diabetes and teaches them how to live a healthy life. Other educational programs focus on car seat, water, bicycle, firearm, home, farm, and baby safety.The C.A.R.E. Mobile, a mobile health clinic providing health screenings and immunizations to children who have limited access to health care.CoxHealth’s Child Life program, a four-person team dedicated to helping create a sense of normalcy for kids who are hospitalized, thereby aiding the healing process.School-based virtual visits, which allows local kids to receive health care at school and get back to class more quickly.In addition to monetary donations, CMN Hospitals at CoxHealth also accepts stocks and bonds, real estate, personal property, life insurance policies, certificates of deposit, retirement funds, as well as bequests from estates. All donations help local children, giving a great benefit to families across the region.“CoxHealth funds the operating costs of our local CMN Hospitals office, so 100% of gifts and proceeds benefit children right here in the Ozarks,” says Siebert.For more information or to make a donation, call 417-268-3222 (24/7 through Dec. 3) or go online to www.coxhealthcmn.com.
