In 2009, our hospital joined with the Kid’s Wish Network in implementing a Hero of the Month program. Shriners Hospitals for Children in Springfield, Mass participates in this program by nominating one child every month from our facility.¬† When a nominee becomes the “Shriners Hero of the Month”¬†he or she¬†is awarded with a number special gifts provided by the Kids Wish Network including a prepaid gift card, Hero Certificate, T-shirt, a medal and free membership to the Kids Wish Network.¬† It’s an amazing program and is based on the idea that paying tribute to these children’s ability to overcome adversity can make a real and positive difference in their recovery. For more information about the Hero of the Month program, visit the Kids Wish Network website at www.kidswishnetwork.org.
