Miracle Family Program

What is a Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital Miracle Family?

A Miracle Family is a family that has benefited from the services at the children’s hospital, and is willing to speak about their experience(s) at a variety of different children’s hospital events. A Miracle Family’s primary function is to create awareness and help raise funds for The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital through a variety of different outlets.

By sharing your experience, you’re providing a first-hand account of the impact that our state-of-the-art children’s hospital has on the community. Your story will inspire members of our community to support the children’s hospital! The more support BBCH receives from the community, the more resources we can devote to advancing the care that is provided by The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital.
