It's a week to celebrate the miracles that happen every day at Penn State Health Children's Hospital. 

Patient Assistance Endowment

Your gift will support CMN's patient assistance endowment to help families with the unexpected cost of medication, medical devices, travel expenses, food boxes and more. Our goal is to raise $125,000, which will help 250 families! 

These services are used after families have exhausted other forms of payment including insurance and help ensure children receive proper care to avoid unnecessary hospital stays. Here are some specific ways this endowment helps pediatric patients:

Jean didn't want to leave her child's bedside so daily meal vouchers helped her stay healthy and nourished during long hospital stays. 

The fund provided gas vouchers so Ayden's dad could travel 300 miles each way from Erie to visit him in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Lucia, a diabetes patient, received support for her initial medications through the patient assistance fund.
