St. Luke's Children's Hospital is Idaho's only Children's Miracle Network Hospital. We conduct fundraising year-round with local partners dedicated to helping our pediatric patients and their families.
Since its founding, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $4.7 billion, most of which is donated one dollar at a time by individuals throughout the United States and Canada. Every donation made to CMN Hospitals through local campaigns stays in its community.
St. Luke's was a founding hospital of CMN Hospitals more than 30 years ago. Since 1983, over $7 million has been raised locally to support Idaho's only children's hospital.
Thank you to our CMN Hospitals partners and the communities that make donations to the kids at St. Luke's Children's Hospital. You help our doctors, nurses, and staff to provide the best possible care to over 90,000 children each year.
Brinley, 9, was out branding with her family on their ranch near Hammett in April, 2019, when one of the cattle trampled her. She was transported by air ambulance with life-threatening injuries: collapsed lungs, a lacerated spleen and broken ribs.
After a year of therapy and specialist visits, she has made a full recovery.
“She’s the spunkiest, most kind-hearted gal you’ll ever meet,” her father, Spencer Oldham, said.
Being a Children’s Miracle Network Champion means that Brinley will be an ambassador for St. Luke’s Children’s this year and will visit with participating partners, including Costco, Walmart, Ace and Panda Express. Here she comes!
Eight-year-old Hadley looks and acts like other little girls. She enjoys coloring with her older sister Stella, playing with dolls, convincing her dad to play makeup, and snuggling her pink unicorn "Candy Heart."
Hadley was born healthy, but after six months she started refusing food. Her motor skills weren't developing, and her blood levels were all wrong. Finally, she saw a pediatric nephrologist who recognized the symptoms of cystinosis, a rare, incurable metabolic disease that causes the amino acid cystine to accumulate, affecting every organ in the body.
After getting the proper treatment and some surgery, she started growing and walking. Now Hadley smiles a lot. She has participated in fundraising events for St. Luke's Children's Hospital and her family has set up a nonprofit called Hearts for Hadley to benefit cystinosis research.
They call her Mighty Mia, a name she's earned. Mia was born with a rare birth defect of the heart and other organs. She had the most complex array of heart defects her medical team had ever seen, requiring a series of surgeries and intense therapy.
Mia is currently off all medications and no longer needs oxygen or a feeding tube, although she still has a pacemaker and will need ongoing cardiology care.
When she's asked about her hospital stays, she tells stories about her favorite doctors and nurses and, like most six-year-olds, the delicious macaroni and cheese.
