A Farewell Letter from Bronson, our Intern

Over the past several weeks the Children’s Miracle Network team had the great privilege of working with a high school student while he completed his Senior Internship. Below is a farewell message from our intern, Bronson!

Farewell From Bronson

My Name Is Bronson and I was an Intern for four weeks for Children’s Miracle Network at UNM Children’s Hospital. During my time as an intern, I was given the opportunity to see the Hospital from all angles. I got to meet the staff from the Hospital and the UNM Foundation and even some children that were patients. I also got to see many of the different rooms of the hospital. It was an awesome, exciting experience to work with the UNM Children’s Hospital.

My time at the hospital was not only spent in the office. I got to go to different events hosted by both the UNM Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Miracle Network. I got to go to an event for Costco Wholesale to help kick off their fundraising campaign. I also got to help with another event to thank Smith’s Grocery Stores. While I was there, I got to see the New Mexico Champion Child, Amy. Amy and I are actually close friends, we both used to go to the same High School. These events that I attended were helping kids from all backgrounds and all walks of life find the care they need.

As an Intern, I got to be a tour guide and was even given tours of the hospital myself. I got to see the many rooms from all around the facility. Many of these rooms were very well done. It was obvious that a lot of thought and care went into the construction of these rooms.

But the most important part of the hospital is the children patients of the UNM Children’s Hospital. Some days, I would walk into work and see a parent incapacitated by grief. I would see children that cannot walk or see, I would see children that have multiple tragic problems that they face daily. But the moving thing to me is that they stay strong. These parents and children have more courage than I have ever seen. I never realized how important donations were until I started my internship. These children are so thankful for everything people do to help and they stay strong through the adversity and the trials that they face. These are strong kids!

I would like to thank the UNM Hospital’s and the Children’s Miracle Network for allowing me the opportunity to work alongside and help the patients and staff of this great facility.On Behalf of the Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Miracle Network. I would like to thank all those for your help and donations for these children. Every cent makes a difference in these kid’s lives.
