CMN Hospitals Ambassadors


There is nothing more powerful and motivating than a miracle story.


The Children’s Miracle Network ambassador program at UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital provides a platform to help families share their incredible stories to further its mission of building awareness and increasing funds for hospitalized children in our community.
