It's a week to celebrate the miracles that happen every day at Penn State Health Children's Hospital. 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 $100,000, which will help 200 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. 

Learn more about the endowment in this short animated video produced by our #DollarsatWork sponsor JPL:

The fund also provides special car seats for kids like Gannon and Reaghan who have hip casts. Imagine having to pay for one of these car seats unexpectedly.
