Nemours Children’s Health has provided specialty care services to children throughout Central Florida for more than 30 years, providing care and services to nearly half a million patients annually. As part of Nemours not-for-profit mission, it offers quality care and experience to children, regardless of their families’ ability to pay.

News 6 spoke with several parents whose children have been helped immensely at Nemours.

“It was just miracle after miracle,” said Joanna Crews, mother to congenital heart defect patient Carter Crews.

“She had such a great experience. It is monumental,” said Joseph Mitsouras, father to 14-year-old Nemours patient Ines Mitsouras.

“If it wasn’t for Nemours, we would be mourning,” said Christopher Hill, father to Nemours NICU patient Finn Hill.

“They took care of us as parents while we were here, and that is invaluable to me,” said Finn’s mother, Jessica.
