Fifty-four pediatric patients from every state, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico visited with First Lady Michelle Obama on Monday while raising awareness for children’s hospitals.
The kids are serving as Champions for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and on a weeklong tour of Washington, D.C, and Orlando, Fla. They are sharing their inspiring stories and how local children’s hospitals changed their lives.
The First Lady thanked the Champions for their courage and strength, while accepting their hugs and compliments. On behalf of the group, 4-year-old Carly Kudzia, the Champion from Ohio, presented the First Lady with a card signed by the Champions and a Miracle Bear.
