Children's Miracle Network Hospitals


St. Luke's Children's Hospital is Idaho's only Children's Miracle Network Hospital. We conduct fundraising year-round with local partners dedicated to helping our pediatric patients and their families. 

Since its founding, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $4.7 billion, most of which is donated one dollar at a time by individuals throughout the United States and Canada. Every donation made to CMN Hospitals through local campaigns stays in its community.

St. Luke's was a founding hospital of CMN Hospitals more than 30 years ago. Since 1983, over $7 million has been raised locally to support Idaho's only children's hospital.

2018 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Champion: Mia

Mia's Heart Beats the Odds

They call her Mighty Mia, a name she's earned. Mia was born with a rare birth defect of the heart and other organs. She had the most complex array of heart defects her medical team had ever seen, requiring a series of surgeries and intense therapy.

Mia is currently off all medications and no longer needs oxygen or a feeding tube, although she still has a pacemaker and will need ongoing cardiology care.

When she's asked about her hospital stays, she tells stories about her favorite doctors and nurses and, like most six-year-olds, the delicious macaroni and cheese.

2016/2017 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Champion: Beckham

Beckham Beats Blood Disease

Beckham got to know St. Luke's Children's Hospital when he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Later, when he started having fevers and stomach pain, he returned for a second diagnosis: a rare blood disease that affects one in a million kids.

In addition to chemotherapy, Beckham needed a bone marrow transplant. Thankfully, both were successful. 

CMN Hospitals donations help St. Luke's Children's provide great care for Beckham and thousands of other babies, kids, and teens.

2015 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Champion: Vann

Vann Gives to Help Babies in the NICU

Vann was born 15 weeks early, weighing only 1 pound, 13 ounces. He underwent brain and heart surgery in his first two months, defying more challenging odds than most people face in a lifetime.

He's grown up without any other health issues, a true blessing given the severity of his diagnoses at birth. And every year on his birthday he collects pajamas and blankets for babies in the NICU. He dreams of being a doctor someday so he can help people just like the doctors at St. Luke's helped him.

CMN Hospitals donations helped fund an expansion of the NICU where Vann was treated, and the equipment that helped him thrive.
