The Concho Valley turned out and helped raise nearly $460,000 for the Children’s Miracle Network during the 2023 CMN Celebration Telethon.

Special segments featured the 2023 Miracle Children and their stories of courage, local donor check presentations, information about items on the CMN wish list, and details about CMN’s services.

The primary goal of the Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) is to provide the services, equipment, and training necessary so that your child or one that you know can stay in San Angelo at home (or closer to home) for their treatments. At Shannon, we know how difficult it can be for children and their families to have to travel to receive necessary medical treatment.

Children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support to provide the best care for kids. One hundred percent of contributions to the Children’s Miracle Network stay at Shannon Medical Center to benefit our Pediatric Unit, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Trauma, Emergency Room, Shannon Pediatric Clinic, and any other department that could treat a child.
