How Your Dollars Make Miracles 

The Pediatrics Department at the University of Kansas Medical Center is proud to be the local CMN Hospital in the Greater Kansas City area. The funds raised through CMN events go directly to fund pediatric research initiatives taking place exclusively at KU Medical Center. In addition, funds help sick and injured children being treated at the University of Kansas Health System. These dollars are used to pay for charitable care, equipment, supplies and educational programs.

CMN Welcomes Ava Paige

In February, CMN welcomed Ava Paige, country music singer and song writer from Nashville, to Kansas City, where she played a live show for RE/MAX agents and community members alike.  This event was hosted by RE/MAX Heritage where guests enjoyed music, fun games and a live and silent auction. 

Not only is Ava a rising start in the country music world, she is also a CMN National Champion and spokesperson.  Ava was diagnosed with leukemia and was treated at her local CMN Hospital.  Because of the care she received, she is now in remission and singing from the rooftops!  She enjoys playing all across the country and spreading the word about CMN Hospitals and how they help families in each and every local community. 

The event was a resounding success, attracting over 500 attendees and raising over $57,000!  Many thanks to RE/MAX Heritage and their agents for hosting this amazing event!

In Our House: Science is Changing the Future

Receiving a cancer diagnosis is never easy, especially when it’s given to a child. But at KU Medical Center, families can rest assured that they will receive the best care with the most ground-breaking treatments.

The Proton Therapy Center on our campus is not only the first in the region but offers the most advanced form of radiation therapy available for cancer today. Children’s Miracle Network understands that no cancer treatment is ever easy. We strive to make every child feel welcomed and safe by providing toys, gift cards and other comforting items.

Support from our partners and donors means cancer care is transformed with state-of-the-art science like proton therapy. This beam of hope gives every child the chance to change their story, just like Clara.

If you would like to make comfort care items available to every child, please donate today. All funds donated stay local and help families being treated on the KU Medical Center campus.

Thank you!

DHS Wildcats Make Their Mark!

The Leadership and Service Action class at De Soto High School led the student body in hosting their 3rd annual DHS Dance Marathon on Sunday, March 5. This event brought together students, alumni, and residents to connect and enjoy activities including music bingo, volleyball, and learning a student-choreographed Dance Marathon Morale Dance! De Soto High School celebrated a year of fundraising while making a final push to maximize their donation to Children’s Miracle Network.

Their 2023 goal was $10,000. They blew through that goal and raised an astounding total of $17,250 for kids treated at KU Medical Center!  We are incredibly impressed and grateful for these dedicated students. Thank you, DHS Dance Marathon!

KC Heartland Gamers Win for Kids in Orlando! 

Extra Life United (ELU) was hosted entirely in person this year, and CMN was excited to sponsor the participation of former Guild President, Brie Clemens, and Michael Oliver, a multi-year supporter and top fundraiser.

 Extra Life United was held during Children’s Hospitals Week, April 5-7, 2023 at the Orlando World Center Marriot. ELU participants competed in a variety of games with their winnings donated to their preferred CMN Hospital.
