Miracle Makers: Making a Difference through Positivity

Christy Howell and her 17-year-old daughter, Alyssa, love spending time at the beach, going to football games, and attending concerts together. But just four years ago, the mother-daughter duo were spending nearly all of their time sequestered at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, where Alyssa was undergoing treatment for leukemia.

Alyssa had an army of doctors, nurses, and specialists devising treatment plans and supporting her and her family through this harrowing ordeal. “Every staff member at the hospital was phenomenal,” Christy says. “They became her best friends.”

Christy had been involved in the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fundraising long before Alyssa got sick, but after seeing firsthand the difference that CMN Hospitals makes, she put her all into fundraising. “It’s given me a new outlook and a new perspective, “ she says. She is a positive force in encouraging her fellow associates to set goals, plan the best fundraising activities they can think of, and do everything they can for the local children’s hospital and the children who receive treatment there.

Join Christy in raising money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals by donating at your local Walmart or Sam’s Club today.
