CMN Creates Christmas Miracles with Help from Santa


For over 15 years Children’s Miracle Network at Regional Health has been spreading holiday cheer with a little help from the big man himself.

On December 13th, 2018 Santa took some time off from the Christmas preparations at the North Pole to bring a little magic to children in the Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care Units at Regional Health.

“These kids are just so brave. Their parents are too. But they just need to know that somebody loves them. And that’s what Santa’s about,” says Santa Claus.

With the help of Children’s Miracle Network and some undercover elves, Santa was able to hand deliver gifts to the ill and injured children spending part of their holiday season in the hospital.

“I think it’s magical for them because they are here. The kids think that Santa isn’t going to find them. So the fact that Santa comes and brings them a gift and talks to them. They feel special and they feel that Christmas magic even if they have to be here,” says Registered Nurse Sheila McKinstery.

Children’s Miracle Network is able to make miracles happen at Christmas and throughout the year thanks to funds raised through charitable donations.
