Children’s Miracle Network Miracle Moment: Knox Klapperich

The Children’s Miracle Network got its start in 1983 with the mission to help cover the cost of medical care for children. Since then, they have raised over seven billion dollars, most donations raised only one dollar at a time. Children’s hospitals like Monument Health rely on the kind donations of their communities to improve the lives of as many children as possible.

In 2018, Maggie Klapperich’s son, Knox, was saved by the Rapid City NICU. In her previous experiences, Klapperich was able to go to the hospital, have her baby, and go home. This time her full-term baby had two collapsed lungs, which caused his heart to push over to the wrong side of his chest. “Those 16 days in our NICU changed our lives forever,” says Klapperich. Being self-employed, she had to go back to work immediately after being discharged from the hospital. Klapperich and her family explain that they are forever grateful that the NICU was equipped to help Knox and treat his diagnosis. This allowed both parents to work while also being able to sit with their son and see their school-age daughters every day.  “It meant so much to me at a time when there was so much uncertainty. I have no words for how much I appreciate every single CMN donor and volunteer,” says Klapperich.

Now almost two-years-old, Knox is healthy, thriving, and his family is so happy to have him in their lives.
