Hi! I’m Lilly, the 2019 Miracle Child Champion for Children’s Miracle Network Hershey. I’m also a NICU grad and ongoing patient of Penn State Children’s Hospital. Oh, and I LOVE to rock out to her favorite band, Halestorm.
I also LOVE Penn State Children’s Hospital. Not only did it help me when I was born super early, but it helped my mom too. My mom was in a terrible car accident while was she was pregnant with me and both she and I needed the care of Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. Thank goodness it’s a level 1 trauma center for both adults and children.
That’s why I’m so excited to celebrate Children’s Hospitals Week,
March 18 – 24. Will you join me?
CMN Hershey turns 35 this year – nearly three times older than Lilly. In honor of our anniversary, Lilly and all of our tiniest patients, we are focusing on raising funds for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Penn State Children’s Hospital. To make a gift click here.
Thank you to Johnson Controls for matching all online gifts up to $10,000!

I work at Penn State Children’s Hospital and witness miracles every day. That’s why I’m supporting #CMNHershey during #ChildrensHospitalsWeek and making a donation to support the NICU. I’m hoping 5 friends will join me in making a gift too: CMNHershey.org/CHW19
I just donated $20 to #CMNHershey to support the NICU at Penn State Children’s Hospital in honor of #ChildrensHospitalsWeek. Will 10 friends match my gift? Together, we’ll give tiny babies the #GiftofGrowingUp! CMNHershey.org/CHW19
In honor of #ChildrensHospitalsWeek and #CMNHershey’s 35th anniversary, help me raise $135 to purchase positioning tools for the NICU at Penn State Children’s Hospital. These help to create a cozy “nest” that helps to stabilize preemies. I’ll kick it off with a gift of $35: <Personal URL fundraising page>
