CMN: Where Do the Dollars Go?

Children's Miracle Network Director Britt Pharris, eagerly anticipates the 20th anniversary of the CMN Telethon on NewsChannel 11. "It's just amazing how generous the people of the South Plains are. 100% of what we raise pays to help the kids."

It's a familiar phrase heard often during the telethon, but where exactly does the money go? It funds equipment and research programs and that research and equipment is expensive. Contributions to CMN have made it possible top purchase two $25,000 Neonatal Ventilators, $90,000 worth of Laprascopic equipment for Pediatric Surgery, and two miniature intensive care units at a cost of $115,000. "For the past 20 years we've raised $6.2 million locally," Pharris says.

What's on this year's wish list? 20 Neonatal Cardiopulmonary Monitors, a children's anesthesia machine, and a vascular doppler.

So now you know why your contributions are such a source of excitement.
