Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) was established nationally in 1983 to help children by actively supporting improved health care for millions of young people around the world. CMNH’s mission is to generate funds and awareness programs for the benefit of children served by its associated hospitals, now numbering more than 170 nationwide. They’ve helped countless numbers of children, including 9 year old Hannah from North Dakota.
No matter what Hannah goes through, she always jumps back up with a smile. Hannah has already conquered the osteosarcoma bone cancer in her right arm by refusing to let it get in her way.
Recently undergoing surgery on her right arm and leg to remove the tumor, Hannah didn’t despair, even though she is right-handed. Instead she instantly switched to her left hand and began drawing designs to put on her temporary wheelchair.
Hannah’s unwavering resilience tends to rub off on those around her. While hospitalized for a fever, Hannah surveyed her hospital floor to count how many kids there were. She then created cards for every child and secretly delivered them to each room. Hannah’s gesture comforted and encouraged many families, and they began to look to her for inspiration.
Hannah just finished chemotherapy and can now be found running, swimming, riding her bike or playing ball or simply enjoying the outdoors.
CMN Hospitals funds provided Hannah with the psychosocial support of child life services and distractions tools, the Bravery Bead program and the hospital’s nitrous oxide sedation program.
