Local Connection: Children's Miracle Network

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Everyone agrees, the children are our future.

Hawaii News Now is proud to partner with Kapiolani Medical Center for women and children to raise money to make miracles happen for our local children.

Kapiolani is Hawai'i's only Children's Miracle Network hospital and is *the lifeline to pediatric care in the pacific.

In one year, Kapiolani delivered over 6,000 babies, had over 17,000 admissions into the hospital and saw almost 45,000 visits to the emergency department.

What's more, nearly everyone has a story that connects them to Kapiolani. Personally -- my children were born at Kapiolani.

Many of us here at the station have been blessed by hawaii's only specialized women's and children's hospital.

We hope that you watch our special presentation telethon "Together We Make Miracles Happen", it is inspiring to see how these babies and young children survive against all odds because of the team at Kapiolani.

Better yet, what you give to the Kapiolani Telethon or radiothon will have a positive impact on our islands.

I can say that with complete confidence -- since 100 percent of the money raised in Hawaii, stays in Hawaii to help local keiki and families receive the best medical treatment possible.

Kapiolani saves lives statewide.

It's transport team reaches all of the hawaiian islands to make kapiolani's specialized care available to everyone.

Visit Hawaii News Now-dot-com to be a part of the important work at our only Children Miracle Network hospital.

The children who come to Kapiolani need your support.
