At Family Forward last year, I met a family that has been affected by their local children's hospital: The Ferrels and their son Nathan. Nathan has mitochondrial disease, which makes it hard for his body to create energy.

Funds at his Children's Miracle Network Hospital helped open the pediatric emergency department and fully fund child life services, all of which support Nathan's livelihood.

Spending an entire weekend with the Ferrels and seeing how Nathan is thriving all because of people's donations really opened my eyes to the difference all of us can make as we support our local children's hospitals through organizations like Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
