Donations help kids like Vincent. Vinny had a rough start. As a baby, he was often sick and saw several doctors and specialists in an effort to get to the bottom of his health issues, many of which involved respiratory issues such as respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and breathing issues.

At the age 7, Vincent was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis along with a pancreatic insufficiency.

Today, even though Vincent has a lot of health challenges, he’s involved in a running club and other sports-related activities at his elementary school. He’s also an accomplished artist and has plans of working for Marvel one day.

After Vincent’s diagnosis, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals helped the family purchase a special vest which vibrates at a high frequency to help break up the mucus in Vincent’s chest. The family also receives funds, directly from Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals donations, which allow them to travel to see a specialist.

So don’t forget to support National Pancake Day on February 25 and get your FREE pancakes from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
