An adult male, Steven Wagner and teenage girl, Greer Cofield are on a front porch facing the camera. Greer is sitting on a porch swing and Steven is standing to the right leaning on the porch railing.

Steven: “Hi! I’m Steven Wagner, the Executive Director of Development for the Erlanger Health System Foundation.”

Greer: “And I’m Greer Cofield, a former patient and the 2020 Miracle Kid for Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.”

Steven: “We thank you for this opportunity to tell you why Children’s is so important to the community and why we need your help.”

Scene cuts to a series of images related to Greer Cofield’s injury and treatment.
