Every year, Clemson Miracle collaborates with Prisma Health staff to determine which project to fund that will improve the hospital experience for patients and their families.
Last year, Clemson Miracle funds benefited the renovation of Greenville Memorial’s healing garden. This garden gives parents and children an outdoor area to enjoy during hospital stays. The renovation will include an interactive space with animal statues and scavenger hunts. Another portion of last year's funds benefited the creation of the Clemson Miracle Pediatric Camp Endowment. This endowment will allow pediatric patients to attend medically supervised summer camps free of cost. Camps offered are for patients with cancer, diabetes, lung disorders and more.
This year, Clemson Miracle will continue to contribute to pediatric summer camps as well as The Canine F.E.T.C.H (Friends Encouraging Therapeutic Coping and Healing) Unit, one of many Child Life programs at Prisma Health. This team is comprised of four highly-trained facility dogs who partner with their handlers to provide emotional support to pediatric patients and bring comfort to siblings, parents, visitors, and staff.
