WTAJ-TV has teamed with Children's Miracle Network at Geisinger to help make miracles happen for ill and injured children in our region.

Thanks to our generous viewers and Children’s Miracle Network supporters, more than $15 million has been raised for pediatric equipment, programs and services throughout northeastern and central Pennsylvania.

Each spring, we proudly bring you our celebration broadcast, where donors are recognized and viewers have the opportunity to meet “miracle kids” – kids from your communities who have battled through serious medical issues, often with incredible and astounding results.

We hope you will tune in to the annual Celebration broadcast - hosted by your favorite WTAJ personalities on Sunday, June 5th, to learn more about this cause or visit the Janet Weis Children's Hospital website.
"Together, we can help make miracles happen every day."

Children's Miracle Network Headlines

Meet our Miracle Kids!

Angel Gillot, 16, of Lock Haven, was born with a malformed heart valve. The defect led to too little oxygen in her blood — but three surgeries before the age of 3 corrected the problem. Angel also was born with only one kidney. In 2012, she was diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome, which caused protein to leak out of her body through her urine, damaging her kidney. Her cardiologist and her nephrologist worked together to find medications to control the leak, stabilizing Angel’s kidney function.

Macy Plowman, 8, of Mill Hall had a strange episode at 4 years old that caused her to pass out at her father’s house. When paramedics arrived, they found her heart rate to be around 200 beats per minute — way too fast. After many tests, monitoring, medication trials and stays in the Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital, Macy was finally diagnosed with ventricular tachycardia. With the proper medication and routine checkups, Macy’s heart rate is now under control. Machines that test heart function, like the ones used on Macy, were funded by Children’s Miracle Network at Geisinger. Donations support the Child Life Department, which kept Macy happily distracted while she was in the hospital. Gifts also have purchased items such as recliners that allow
parents to stay comfortably in the room with their child.

Nevaeh Brown, 2, of Osceola Mills was born prematurely at 26 weeks. She weighed only 1 pound, 7 ounces and spent 4 months in the Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) battling to survive. Nevaeh suffered from necrotizing enterocolitis, an illness that damages the intestines and bowels. She underwent seven surgeries to correct her intestinal problems. She also needed several blood transfusions, mechanical ventilation to help her breathe and antibiotics to fight infections.
