My name is Noah. I am 14 years old. I'm on a mission to save kids and I need your help. My local Children's Miracle Network Hospital treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their family's ability to pay. And I know firsthand how important children's hospitals are for kids. I was born with a rare condition and I have spent a lot of time in the hospital including 5 and a half months when I was born and lots since then. I have had 30 surgeries, even more tests and procedures and I am followed by lots of different doctors who help care for me.

And I am the 2015 Vermont Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Champion- which means I spent all of 2015 as an ambassador for our hospital and along with the champions from other states I represent all the kid's who need hospitals. Even though my Champion year is over, I will always be a champion for CMNH and our children's hospital. Together with my parents we share my story and tell others about how important children's hospitals are to families like ours.

I fell in love with video games six and a half ago when I was recovering from a surgery and couldn't move around or go outside for at least 6 weeks. It was a long time but I discovered video games were a great way to pass the time and I played A LOT!

Now I use video games for good- not just to help me but to help others. I'll be participating again in this huge event, Extra Life, where gamers all over the country play any kind of games, from video games to board and lawn games, for 24 hours in order to raise money for my local Children's Miracle Network Hospital- the University of Vermont Children's Hospital.

Since 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $70 million to help children's hospitals provide critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, research and charitible care. It's my sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support my efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to my hospital.

Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.
