Because of your support, the Credit Unions for Kids program benefitting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is making miracles happen!

What kind of miracles? Micah is living proof that miracles happen. When her mother, Terri, was 20 weeks pregnant, Micah was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect in utero. Because of Micah’s delicate condition, Terri was sent to Children’s National Medical Center to be a part of the Children’s Fetal Heart Program.

Terri and Micah were monitored closely during pregnancy, and Micah was born by cesarean section at 33 weeks. Before she turned one, she had three open heart surgeries and four cardiac catheterizations. Micah turned just turned 3. She is happy and healthy and an inspiration to everyone at Children’s National Medical Center! Thank you for making her 3rd birthday possible.
