One Credit Union Employee's Miracle Story

Credit union employees and members across the U.S. raise money to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in local communities throughout the country. Sometimes it’s the employees and members themselves who experience first-hand the impact of the money they helped raise.

Geoff Bullock is a financial education specialist at Firefly Credit Union in Burnsville, MN, and the father of a Miracle Child. When she was 6 months old, Geoff’s daughter, Annika, displayed worrisome symptoms. Her pediatrician referred Annika to Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare in St. Paul, MN.

She now sees two neurologists regularly and her symptoms have been alleviated, which allows her to live the life of a happy, healthy, 4-year-old who loves singing and watching YouTube videos about baby tigers.

“In addition to our doctors at Gillette being brilliant thought leaders in neurology, they’re also kind, compassionate people who have come to know our entire family,” Bullock says. “We have a personal relationship with them, and Annika wouldn’t be healthy like she is today if it weren’t for them.”

We are grateful for all our credit union partners’ support of kids like Annika. Click here to learn about the credit union difference, and stop by your local credit union to see what you can do to support Credit Unions for Kids.
