CMN Welcomes New Team Member, Lorna Walker!
We would like to introduce you to the newest member of our team, Lorna Walker. Lorna is our new Family Services Coordinator and will be working part-time in both Kansas City and Prairie Village clinics to help assist families who are in need of additional resources for their child. She will also be talking to families about CMN, the services we provide and how they can get their families more involved.
Lorna is not a new face to Children's Miracle Network here in Kansas City, as her son, Preston, is our Kansas City Miracle Child this year. She will bring a personal level to this position that only a family who has experienced the roller-coaster of emotions that comes with having a child with significant medical challenges knows. Lorna will be able to share that understanding and compassion with families in the clinic and help direct them to the resources they need.
While she will wear her CMN hat while she is in the clinic setting, she will continue to represent our office at special events and during campaigns with her family as a Miracle Mom. Please help us welcome Lorna!

Pizza Pies & Miracle Kids... FANTASTICO!
Our fundraising partner, Sarpino's Pizza threw caution to the wind and let seven of our very own CMN Miracle Kids take over the kitchen at their location in Overland Park, KS, for a very special task. They were asked to create a delicious and "menu worthy" pizza that was uniquely their own using any of the Sarpino's signature ingredients. A panel of judges, which included two Sarpino owners, our very own CMN staffer, Katie Walden and Dr. Mike Lewis from KU Medical Center Pediatrics had the honor of tasting each pizza and picking the top 3 pies that would be featured on Sarpino's online menu from September to December. The top 3 winners were:
1st Place - Becca's Basil Blast - Alfredo & Pesto Sauce, Chicken, Sun Dried Tomatoes, Spinach, Onions and Basil.
2nd Place- Hans's Hansy Pizza- Pesto Sauce, Chicken, Garlic and Parmesan.
3rd Place - Chloe's Pizzeria Pizza - BBQ Sauce, Pepperoni, Red and Green Peppers.
Order your favorite from our talented chefs in September!
