Funding tomorrow’s cures through today’s research 

Children’s Miracle Network funds promising research studies that deliver life-saving care to children.

Research studies are part of a critical journey towards delivering life-saving care to children. Sometimes, though, promising studies can get held up due to a lack of funding.

That’s where the Children’s Miracle Network comes in. Your donations go directly toward supporting research at multiple points along the path, from ideas and discoveries to real-world solutions that have a huge impact on the lives of children.

View a brief video about how your gift supports research:

Your donations funded projects with positive, real-world benefits to children’s health, including:

A saliva test that more quickly identifies concussions 


A long-term study that provides valuable insight into how parents can prevent obesity in their children 


Cutting-edge clinical trials right here in central Pennsylvania for local children with muscular dystrophy 



Thanks to your donations, projects like these have gone on to receive additional funding from other prominent organizations like the National Health Institute. This puts them one step closer to medical breakthroughs that will make a difference for a child in need.

Will you help the Children’s Miracle Network fund life-changing research in pediatric medicine? Gifts will benefit CMN's pediatric research endowment to benefit kids now and in the future.

Meet some of the children who have received treatment at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital and benefitted from the research funded by donors like you. A CMN-funded research initiative about 3D heart printing help to save Miracle Child Henry's life. Doctors used 3D printing to make an exact replica of Henry's heart so they could plan his heart surgery before Henry was even in the operating room. Watch Henry's story.
