Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals annual telethon to be held May 30-June 1

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals of CoxHealth has financially supported sick and injured children in the Ozarks by helping their families pay for medically related travel expenses, medical equipment purchases and much more.

The annual CMN Hospitals Telethon is a great opportunity for our community to become a part of the miracle. “Financial support from the public means we can help provide assistance to local children who might otherwise be unable to afford much needed medical treatment,” says Tim Siebert, Executive Director of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “One-hundred percent of gifts and proceeds will help local kids. They may be a neighbor, a friend or a family member.”

The telethon will air live on KY3 10:30 p.m. – Midnight, Saturday, May 31 and 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Sunday, June 1. The live broadcast from Cox Medical Center South in Springfield will feature inspirational stories of many local children and their families who have been helped by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Last year CMN Hospitals of CoxHealth raised more than $1.5 million to help local kids.
