Award-Winning Country Artist Phil Vassar Teams Up with Children’s Miracle Network to Help Kids in Need


Award-winning country singer/songwriter Phil Vassar is showing his support of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals with an official CMN Hospitals’ Miracle Band. By wearing this wristband, Vassar has joined celebrity spokeswoman Jennifer Lopez along with Lady Antebellum and Sir Paul McCartney, in showing a commitment to give kids every chance to live better and support the organization’s work and the families affected by childhood illness.

“I have two beautiful daughters and I can’t image my life without them,” says Vassar. “There are children all over the world who are suffering because they don’t have the resources to get the help they need. I’m so glad to be a part of this.”

The #MiracleBand campaign is an effort by CMN Hospitals to spread the message that local children’s hospitals rely on donor support in order to provide life-saving care. This digital presence is helping the hospitals receive recognition and donations, all while bettering the lives of thousands of families with sick children in the U.S. and Canada. Since 1983, CMN Hospitals has raised over $5 billion in donations for over 170 children’s hospitals. Donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
