Each year, Children's selects a few patients to be Children's Miracle Network "Miracle Kids". These are kids that have overcome incredible circumstances and beat the odds. If you go to Children's YouTube page, there are a few more that are posted, but I wanted to highlight one in particular. Some of you may remember the patient in Chris Tomlin's "I Lift My Hands" video. He was featured as a CMN kid this year. You can check out his mom's blog here. I would encourage you to watch his video and then click here to view our other 2012 miracle kids.
"This is not general surgery on a miniature scale. These are the tiny humans. These are children. They believe in magic. They play pretend. There is fairy dust in their IV bags. They hope, and they cross their fingers, and they make wishes, and that makes them more resilient than adults. They recover faster, survive worse. They believe." - Grey's Anatomy
