Children's Miracle Network

Children's Miracle Network


Everyday Miracles . . . Those are the kind Children's Miracle Network (CMN) helps make possible. Over 17 million children at 170 hospitals benefit from CMN every year. CMN is making a difference one child at a time, one day at a time, and one miracle at a time.

Children’s Miracle Network has grown dramatically since its founding in 1983 from a televised fundraiser in a small studio to one of the North America's leading children’s charities.


CMN helps by:

  • Raising funds for children’s hospitals
  • Keeping funds in the community in which they were raised to help local children

Miracle Mission

For over 35 years, UMC Children's Hospital has been a proud partner of Children's Miracle Network (CMN), an alliance of over 170 premier children's hospitals. Through this partnership, UMC and CMN have been able to provide state-of-the-art medical technology to the children of the South Plains and Eastern New Mexico.

Because 100% of all CMN donations stay in this area, the latest medical equipment and services are being offered right here in Lubbock. CMN has been helping to make miracles at UMC since 1984.

UMC Children's Hospital is leading our region in pediatric care. With the support of CMN, the Children's Hospital treats children with all types of illnesses and injuries including: cancer, birth defects, heart and muscular disease, cerebral palsy, diabetes and burns. 

Miracle Hospital

As the first pediatric hospital in the region, UMC Children's Hospital has led the way in providing state-of-the-art care and comprehensive services for children. As the teaching hospital for the Texas Tech School of Medicine, UMC has over 30 pediatric specialists on staff.

The UMC Children's Hospital is home to the region's only Burn Intensive Care Unit and is home of the Pediatric Trauma Level II certification. A nationally-certified child life specialist is also on staff to help children and their families cope with the physical and emotional aspects of their treatment.

Miracle Makers

Seeing children go home healthy is the reward for the many dollars and volunteer hours given to Children's Miracle Network (CMN). Each year CMN asks children that have been treated at UMC to share their "miracle story" on the annual KLLL / 96.3 FM Radiothon and KCBD NewsChannel 11 Celebration. These stories help provide a glimpse into the many ways CMN and UMC help to make miracles every day.
