Every year, Children's Miracle Network at Geisinger selects "Miracle Kids" to share their stories of health, recovery and hope. These local children - from northeastern or central Pennsylvania or the southern tier of New York - were treated at Geisinger Janet Weis Children's Hospital with life-saving or life-improving care. We invite you to learn about their touching stories.
