Why your gift matters

Elyse has a rare genetic disease that causes muscular differences. After dislocating her hip, she went through muscle-lengthening surgery at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital and needed a special hip cast to help her heal. CMN’s Patient Assistance Fund provided Elyse's family with an adaptive car seat that is specifically designed for pediatric patients who have hip casts. “Knowing that I had a piece of equipment to keep her safe meant the world to me,” says Elyse’s mom, Amanda.

For any family, an unexpected medical expense can be a burden. For families like Elyse’s, who have faced a lifetime of medical needs and costs, knowing that CMN is here to help brings peace of mind. 

That’s why during Penn State Health Children’s Week, from April 3-8, we are raising funds to support the CMN Patient Assistance Endowment, which benefits families like Elyse’s.

Your gift will help to provide:

  • food boxes and meal coupons
  • clothing vouchers
  • gas cards and taxi fares
  • support for prescription medication
  • durable medical devices
  • weighted blankets
  • adaptive car seats

Join us as we provide relief for families and let them focus on #whatmattersmost during Penn State Health Children’s Week. Together, we can make miracles for kids in our community!


Children's Week's impact

Together, we raised $81,796 in 2022 to help give sick and injured children the #GiftofGrowingUp. This year, we're looking to make an even greater impact.
