National Organization. Local Impact.
We exist to promote and improve the quality of children's healthcare in the Amarillo Region.
ALL FUNDS STAY LOCAL!
Where do we spend our funds?
FAMILY GRANT PROGRAM
We grant out over $300,000 a year to help families with medical bills. Childhood cancer, appendectomies, NICU stays, car accidents, MRI's, surgeries, and more.
We have provided TTUHSC at Amarillo, Moore County Hospital, Ochiltree General Hospital, Childress Regional Medical Center and more with life-saving pediatric equipment. We feel it's important to try and provide health care to the entire Texas Panhandle.
Child Life Program
We are proud to support the Child Life Programs at BSA and NWTH. Child life specialists are pediatric health care professionals who work with children and families in hospitals and other settings to help them cope with the challenges of hospitalization, illness, and disability.
Reeve Thomas Melugin was diagnosed with Accute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on October 2, 2017. Reeve’s cancer is in remission and he is living up to his nickname of Super Reeve! Reeve will continue treatment for another 2 years.
"Our family was so excited to finally welcome a boy into our home, but, our excitement turned into grief once a pediatric cardiologist walked into our hospital to tell us our new baby had a heart that was not working like it was supposed to. Owen was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot, a congenital heart defect commonly known as ‘Blue Baby’. He had open heart surgery at 3 mo of age and has thrived ever since. We go to annual cardiology appointments. Owen is a ball of energy that is constantly moving. By looking at him, you would not be able to tell he was sick. Since his surgery, we have added another boy to our family. He loves his siblings, is the best big brother he can be, enjoys watching and playing football, and riding in tractors. We are nothing but grateful to our Savior for finding such favor in Owen’s life, but equally, we are forever grateful for Children’s Miracle Network for helping our family when we needed it the most." Owen's Mom
Nila is one of monoamniotic twins. They are now 1 year old. They love smiling at their brother and sister and are starting to laugh. They were born at 32 weeks due to the risk of cord entanglement and compression and were in the NICU at BSA for 59 days. Their only treatment plan is that they will both need helmets in the next month or so, but otherwise are two happy healthy little girls!
