Since 1996, Credit Unions for Kids has raised more than $160 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. These vital funds go to help kids like, Lars. Delivered at just 27 weeks, little Lars was not expected to survive. At five days old, he was moved to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, where he had his first surgery. Lars had hydrocephalus, a condition in which fluid builds up in the brain, so he needed a shunt to divert the fluid.

It was nearly 4 months before Lars could go home. At 6 months old, he had a heart attack. His mother recalls celebrating every first holiday, including his birthday, in the hospital. Lars is now three years old and has undergone 12 surgeries. He has some developmental challenges, due in part to cerebral palsy, a neurological disorder that affects muscle movement, but works hard at Children’s Center for Advanced Technology and Robotic Rehabilitation to build strength and coordination.

Lars has already overcome so much in his short life and still has a long road ahead. His mother knows the future may be complicated for Lars, but is confident they can handle it because he is her Miracle Child.
