Miracle Families

Nicklaus Children's Hospital, together with the families and friends who have gone on a journey with the hospital, have created the local champion program. Every miracle family inspires our community by sharing their journey and commitment to a healthy future for every child.

If you decide to become a miracle family, you can choose your commitment level. Our families have the opportunity to help in many ways, from attending local events and speaking at fundraisers, to sharing their story through video and photos, and creating artwork. Nothing is too small or too large. You all are the backbone of our organization, and we could not do our work without you!


  • Partner Campaigns: Your child's photos and medical story may be featured on partner marketing materials to be displayed in stores.
  • give.nicklauschildrens.org: Your child's photo and medical story may be featured on each hospital/foundation website.
  • Suggested Yearly Activations: We would love for your family to support key fundraising activities throughout the year such as store visits, kick-off events, social posts, fundraising events, virtual events, etc.

Bradley and the Migenis Family

After being transferred via LifeFlight ambulance to Nicklaus Children's Hospital shortly after birth, Bradley was placed on medication to help control his overproduction of insulin. After tests showed he suffered from diffused white matter damage, aggressive intervention was required. Overcoming countless challenges, 54 days later Bradley graduated out of the NICU and was able to continue healing at home. Watch Bradley's story and meet our 2021 Miracle Family.

Michael C. and Family

Michael is a very active athlete who enjoys competitive windsurfing, surfing, basketball, working out, yoga and meditation. Last year, he began feeling lethargic and tired, so his mother took him to the doctor's office for testing. She thought it might have been COVID-19. Michael C. was referred to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, where he was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive form of leukemia that affects his liver and spleen. He says it was the support of his family and friends that got him through the physical and mental health fight of his life.
