Evie Elsaesser Will Serve as 2018 Nebraska Champion Ambassador

Children’s Hospital & Medical Center is proud to announce that 8-year-old Evie Elsaesser has been named the 2018 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Champion for the state of Nebraska.

Throughout this year, Evie and her family will serve as spokespeople, advocating for the charitable need at children’s hospitals across North America.

Evie is the daughter of John and Lindsey Elsaesser of Omaha. She was named the 2018 Champion ambassador due to her courageous battle with hypophosphatasia, a rare disorder that softens bones and teeth.

Evie celebrated her role as 2018 Champion Ambassador with a full day of festivities on April 20. She spent the morning as “doctor for a day” at Children’s, visiting various clinics and mixing medicine in the pharmacy. After lunch at her favorite restaurant, Evie enjoyed a behind the scenes tour of the Henry Doorly Zoo, followed by a hotel stay with her family, courtesy of Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District.
