Meet IHOP National Pancake Day Culinary Kid Starla!

Partnering with IHOP, CMN Hospitals put out a call to current and former CMN Hospitals patients to dream up their best pancake creation for the chance to join the inaugural IHOP Kid Culinary Team and cook their recipe in the brand’s test kitchen and then be the ambassador for National Pancake Day. Meet Culinary Kid Starla:

Starla was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia and the chemo treatments severely damaged her heart; in fact she once died and was brought back to life. She chose to create and oatmeal raisin cookie pancake with cinnamon and a scoop of vanilla ice cream in honor of her grandma and the days spent baking cookies together. Today, Starla and her brother love posting YouTube videos of themselves.
