Tis’ the season of giving:  a special gift from 10-year-old Mya Hernandez, a 5th grader at Miller Grove ISD, was received by CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital over the Christmas holiday.

Mya’s mom, Nicki Dutton, told hospital personnel that Mya saved her money for several months to give to someone in need. She was inspired by her little brother, who was born with a heart defect, which made her want to give back to help kids and help others who are facing health struggles. Mya selflessly emptied her entire piggy bank to give to the hospital, toward patients in need. 

“We are humbled to simply be the vessel for her gift. What a wonderful way to give back and uplift others!” stated Holly Ragan, Senior Market Development for CHRISTUS® Mother Frances Hospitals in Sulphur Springs and Winnsboro.
