The Shodair Children’s Hospital, in Helena, is the only Children’s Miracle Network affiliated hospital. Shodair has been caring for Montana’s children since 1887. Every year, the Children’s Miracle Network hospitals’ “Champions Program” finds a child with a remarkable medical story from each state.  These champions serve as ambassadors for the 17 million treated at Children’s Network Hospitals annually. Each chosen child gets to travel to the White House and Disney World. Director of the Montana Children’s Foundation, Glen Newhart, says 10 year old Sotara Barnaby from Pablo has been chosen as Montana’s champion.

 Newhart says April 29th   will be proclaimed as  “Sotara Barnaby Day” in Missoula.
