Local CMN Miracle Kid Joins Jim Brickman During Chattanooga Christmas Concert

Friday, December 13, 2019

Local CMS “Miracle Kid” Daniel Tomanelli and his sister Anna will perform with Jim Brickman during his Christmas Celebration Concert in Chattanooga on Dec. 23. During the performance audience members will be able to donate to Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, part of the national Children’s Miracle Network.

“Miracle Kid” Daniel has a remarkable story of survival and has come a long way since his near-death experience three years ago this month. On a rainy December weekend in 2016, 13-year old Daniel had just exited his parents’ truck when the unthinkable happened; a car traveling more than 50 miles an hour veered off the road and struck the teenager.

Daniel suffered extensive injuries including a collapsed lung, airway trauma, and multiple fractures from his head to his hips, as well as a ruptured spleen, internal bleeding and a traumatic brain bleed. After months of rehabilitation and ongoing medical treatment, Daniel was able to complete milestones such as returning full-time to his normal school schedule, giving the closing speech at his eighth grade graduation, and exploring his love of music by continuing guitar and piano lessons.

Mr. Brickman is a nationally known songwriter and pianist as well as a longtime radio show host. He has earned six Gold and Platinum albums. The musician is best known for his solo piano compositions, pop-style instrumentals and vocal collaborations. He has earned two Grammy nominations for his albums, Best New Age album and Songwriter of the Year. Since 1997 he has hosted his own radio show “The Jim Brickman Show” which is locally syndicated through Sunny 92.3.

Now through the end of this year, the community is invited to donate to their local CMN Hospital, Children’s Hospital at Erlanger through the “Text to Give” campaign. To give, participants can text “BRICKMAN” to 51555 now through Dec. 31. During his Chattanooga concert, Brickman will encourage attendees to donate to the hospital via their phones.

All funds raised locally will support Children’s Hospital at Erlanger’s efforts to continue to provide specialized, pediatric care to the region.  Community support has helped provide specialty care and equipment in a pediatric-centered environment. Most recently, community donations have supported the creation of the Children’s Kennedy Outpatient Center.

It is, very candidly, the biggest mystery of my life.

Such evil has been unfathomable to me. Yesterday ... (click for more)
