Hospitals and pediatric care facilities throughout the entire country participate in this program by nominating one child every month for the entire year. The nominee is then recognized as the Kids Wish Network “Hero of the Month” for the facility. Hospitals, abuse shelters, homeless shelters and other specialized pediatric facilities nationwide tout this program for its ability to positively impact the lives of children and their caregivers.

If you know of a pediatric facility that would benefit from the Hero of the Month program, please have them contact us.
