Miracle Child Nomination Form

The Erlanger Health System Foundation and the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals team are looking for three to four outstanding patients to become 2020 Miracle Children. The CMN Hospitals team, which raises more than $800,000 each year for Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, plans to feature the patients in 2020 CMN Hospitals campaign material, a Miracle Child video, and families will be asked to speak at various events throughout the year for Erlanger. 

Please keep the following considerations in mind when making your nominations—the child and family should:

  • Be flexible and dependable

  • Have phone/email resources to be contacted

  • Be well-spoken and willing to share their child’s story in front of various groups of people, including the media (radio, TV, web, etc.)

  • Have reliable transportation to attend events; families are invited to attend approximately eight or more events annually within the Chattanooga region.

  • Have received the majority of their care at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger

  • Be comfortable with photos of their child being shared on Erlanger’s and our Corporate Partner’s social media accounts for CMNH and Erlanger Corporate Partners related events

Please note: Nomination does not guarantee selection. Only 3–4 patients will be selected.
