I know it is christmas and everyone is tight on money but I have a huge favor to ask of anyone who is in a position to contribute.

I ask that anyone who is in a giving mood or contributes to charities on a regular basis take Childrens Miracle Network into great consideration. I donate on a regular basis and I know the Childrens Miracle Network changes and saves lives.

I was reminded on my way back from the hospital for my daughter's checkup. I looked in the mirror and saw her sleeping in her car seat and thought of how she got to where she is now.

On May 13, 2009 my daughter was born at Christus St. Francis Cabrini Hospital in Alexandria, LA. My daughter was born 10 weeks premature at 2lbs 15oz with a nearly disastrous delivery. My wife was weak and on her way out due to complications and my daughter lost her heart beat. It was nearly the end of life as I knew it. By the grace of god, my daughter came back immediately after the delivery thanks to the nursing staff as the doctor saved my wife. My daughter had to stay in the N.I.C.U. for two months kept alive by some of the most advanced equipment in the medical field. All of the equipment used to save my daughter and my wife and keep them alive was donated by the Childrens Miracle Network. They contribue so much that the hospital was able to pay for an appartment for us to live accross the street from our daughter instead of driving 3hrs a day to see her. It was one of the most difficult times of my families life.

Thanks to the equipment and the staff of the hospital (Gods grace), my daughter is alive, well, and happier than ever with zero complications since leaving the hospital.

While in the hospital there were at least 20 new families in the two months we lived there that were directly effected by the same equipment and donations by Childrens Miracle Network. Thanks to them, this hospital has the highest rating a N.I.C.U. can achieve. I ask that you take every potential family and child into consideration and KNOW that any contributions to this charity WILL make a difference on many lives.

Thank you for hearing my story and considering them,
