A great deal of my time here at Kids Wish Network is spent working on our Hero of the Month program. This program was designed to recognize those children who do not suffer from life threatening illnesses but have been through an extraordinary experience and have managed to overcome it despite the odds against them.
While it’s great to get thank you letters from the families, it means so much to me when the facilities recognize what we do. You know you are truly doing something special when the facility is able to recognize it especially knowing that they come into contact with many things regarding their patients. Here are just a few of the things they have to say
“I also want to let you know how grateful we are to participate in the Hero of the Month Program. What a blessing it has been to be able to recognize some truly outstanding children in this way. Our patients have been overwhelmed and very grateful for the recognition and gifts. It’s had a very positive impact on them & us. Thank you!”
– UMass Memorial Children’s Medical Center (MA)
“I continue to be ecstatic over the youth in my program receiving such generous awards. Thank you so much!”
– Montezuma County Partners (CO)
“Such a great program! We are so excited to have this for our non-life threatening children. Thank you!”
– St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital (ID)
“The parents absolutely love this program as much as their children! It is so great that they get to watch their child light up when presented the HERO shirt/medal/certificate. Thank you!”
– Parkview Hospital (IN)
So thank you for taking the time to participate in this program. It really is a great thing to put a smile on a child’s face that has been through so much! Thank you to our hundreds of facilities that help make this program a success!
