mollyMolly may have been born with Cerebral Palsy, but she certainly doesn't let that slow her down.

When Molly's physical therapist suggested a mobility tricycle to help strengthen her core and leg muscles, Santa must have been listening. With a little help from the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals program at Salinas Valley Health Medical Center, that Christmas Santa left a purple trike, perfect for Molly.

Not only has Molly gotten stronger since receiving the mobility tricycle, she is now able to go on family bike rides with her parents and siblings, just like any other kid.

CMNH and Salinas Valley Health Medical Center were able to help Santa (and Molly) through our locally run medical needs granting program. Grants can be awarded for medically beneficial equipment and services, to children ages 17 and under in Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito Counties. 

100% of your donation goes to help fund pediatric equipment and services, including funding medical needs grants to help kids like Molly.
