Several reasons are to blame for the large disparity when it comes to access to health care in the U.S., the Latino community being among the most affected.
Boston Children’s Hospital wanted to change that, and to that end five years ago it launched Milagros para Niños (Miracles for Children), an initiative that focuses on helping hundreds of Latino families across the country get medical services.
“There is definitely a need for the services and the funds that we generate on behalf of the hospital,” Monica Neuman, a founding member of Milagros para Niños, told Fox News Latino.
The initiative’s most important funding source comes from its annual black-tie gala, which will be held Friday Sept. 12. Since launch, nearly $2 million have been raised to help Milagros para Niños bring the much needed aid to Latino families.
