Consider This...Special Year for CMN

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - This weekend is the 28th year of the Children's Miracle Network celebration. In that time, Karin, Abner and the whole crew at KCBD have helped raise more than $13 million. That money has helped UMC's Children's Hospital make a life-saving impact on thousands of children.

And this year's effort will help fulfill a specific dream. A bigger and better NICU. The neonatal intensive care unit helps save the lives of premature babies or babies born with unexpected problems. This new NICU unit will help ease the emotional roller coaster for those parents by providing special private rooms for all the families complete with a rocker for mom and baby to bond.

Consider this:

You can help make amazing things like this a reality for so many families with one simple commitment. Call in this weekend during the broadcast and become a "building partner" by giving $15 a month for 12 months. Building partners will also have their names permanently added to the new building.

$15 a month for 12 months. A small gift that will make a huge difference in the lives of so many children.
