September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Each day, 42 families in the United States will hear the words “your child has cancer.”

Help us support those families through the most difficult time in their lives by becoming a Miracle Maker. Donations made through the Miracle Maker program help provide the best medical care possible for children and their families in Southeast Texas. Miracle Maker donations help pay travel expenses for local families receiving treatment away from home and allow for the purchase of state-of-the-art medical equipment.

At the age of 3, Roxie was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma, a solid tumor and form of pediatric cancer. Over 17 months, Roxie went through an aggressive, multi- therapeutic regimen to treat her disease. She participated in a trial study at SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center with the intent of keeping the disease from ever returning. 2018 marks the her fifth year free of cancer.

Today, Roxie spends the majority of her free time as a care-free fourth grader. She loves time with her family, especially when she’s playing with one or all of her three siblings. Roxie loves to sing, dance, play soccer and has a real talent for arts and crafts. If you ask Roxie what she wants to be when she grows up, without hesitation she’ll tell you, “a doctor.”

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals donations partially funded a state-of-the-art interventional radiology suite and a machine that tracks and records brain wave patterns at Roxie’s children’s hospital.

Help support Southeast Texas children with cancer and their families by becoming a Miracle Maker today.
