Gunderson Health selects CMN heroes

Five young children selected as heroes

Heroes can be found in every corner of Children’s Miracle Network hospitals and the network is hoping to honor some of those heroes and bring awareness by sharing their stories.

The Hero Kick-off event honors kids who have bravely fought cancer and other illnesses.

The event took place at the Gunderson La Crosse campus where 5 young heroes were honored on Thursday, April 18.

Those who were chosen as the 2019-20 CMN Heroes are:

Mason Hurd and Ethan Hurd from Blair, Wis.

Julian Franzwa from Goodview, Minn.

Hunter Smith from Holmen, Wis.

Keaton Dahl from La Crosse, Wis.

Gunderson says they feel very lucky to have so many remarkable children helping to raise awareness.
