Children’s Miracle Network Names CHOP Patient “Champion of Delaware”

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Marriott Philadelphia Business Council surprise Bryttani Gore with all-expense paid trip to New York City

Published on in CHOP News

Bryttani with group Bryttani Gore is a champion. She was born with multiple craniofacial anomalies and only one eye. Over the past 17 years, doctors with the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) have performed numerous surgeries on her. Through it all, Bryttani remains strong and optimistic. She even mentors other craniofacial patients in CHOP’s Craniofacial Program. She’s a creative young woman who enjoys writing and loves to sing.

When the Children’s Miracle Network Champions Program heard about Bryttani, they wanted to recognize her strength. They selected Bryttani to be their 2016 Champion of Delaware. She was surprised with a trip to New York City, courtesy of the Marriott Philadelphia Business Council. Her two-day adventure started with a limousine ride up to New York, where she and her family stayed at the New York Marriott East Side. Bryttani visited the America Girl store, toured 30 Rockefeller Center, and saw Broadway’s Matilda the Musical.

But her adventure doesn’t end there. This summer, Bryttani and her family will travel on an official Ambassador Tour to share her story and highlight how donations to hospitals within the Children’s Miracle Network can help kids receive the best medical care. She will be joined by CMN Champions from other states, all on a mission to help kids just like them.
