62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute – that’s one child every second.  Some are battling cancer. Some are suffering from a traumatic injury. Others require constant care because they were born too early, or with a genetic disease. Regardless of why the kids are there, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals always have their doors open.  CMN Hospitals provide comfort, treatment and hope to millions of sick kids. In fact, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals treat one in 10 children in North America each year.

I was born at Arnold Palmer Hospital, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in Orlando.  I’ve visited Children’s Hospital Boston and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital to meet the incredible patients.  If you can’t make it to IHOP for National Pancake Day, please consider making a donation to create real miracles for local hospitals:  www.missamericaforkids.org/donate/howlandkat
