Tallahassee’s own Caden Buth, CMN Hospitals Champion representing UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital, represented the hundreds of children from the Big Bend in need of specialized pediatric care not available to them locally who are served by the hospital. Caden’s mom Christina shared his story and journey with Hemophilia A, and expressed how important it is for our communities to continue to support the initiatives of UF Health through Children’s Miracle Network Hospital to give children like Caden and their families hope, and make miracles happen for more kids like him.
