A few weeks ago I share that I have been selected to serve as a Lead Blogger for this fall’s Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN) Miracle Marathon (I’m still very excited about it)! I also promised that I would share my journey and more details about who I am supporting, Freeman Health System in Joplin, Missouri. In my partnership with this amazing CMN Hospital, I have learned so much about the many wonderful ways that Freeman Health System has and continues to give children with health conditions a second chance at living a healthy and thriving life.

Freeman Health System Joplin MO is one of five Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in the country that do Direct Family Assistance. They provide families with the travel and lodging assistance they need in order for their children to receive the care they need from a Specialist in another city. Freeman Health System also assists in the payment of medical equipment (wheelchairs, braces, helmets, etc.), and prescription medication for families.

Learning about a child’s serious illness or other health condition can take a heavy toll on a parent and on the household. There is so much to think about and plan for both emotionally and financially. This is why the Direct Family Assistance that Freeman Health System provides important: just having a network of caring professionals to aid in ensuring that everything is taken care of can make a huge difference in the parents’ lives as well as the lives of the child in need.

 .

Here’s a closer look at some of the ways that Freeman Health System helps a wide range of family situations:

 

  • Provides travel expenses so a child can see an out-of-town specialist
  • Provides monetary assistance for accommodations so a Mom or Dad who has taken a leave of absence from work can be with their son undergoing a three-month treatment in Kansas City
  • Assists with prescription medicines denied by insurance for a little girl in pain
  • Assists with gas money so a Dad can travel weekends to St. Louis to visit his sick baby, give Mom a much needed break and return home to work during the week and care for the siblings
  • Provides financial help for an access ramp for Grandparents raising a teenage granddaughter confined to a wheelchair

Every day, families reach out to Freeman Health System seeking assistance after receiving a devastating diagnosis for a child’s illness or as a result of a child suffering a traumatic injury. Through generous contributions of donors and national partners, Freeman Health System is able to help provide the best possible medical care and offer the most technically advanced equipment available.

All of the above is why the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ Miracle Marathon is so important. It is a chance for people to help give back to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals such as Freeman Health System that work tirelessly to give children and their families the support and resources they need. And what better way to do it than by promoting health and wellness by encouraging the incorporation of exercise into the daily routine.
