Children's Miracle Network Child to light Downtown Tyler Christmas Tree

Posted: Updated:

TYLER (KYTX) - The City of Tyler and Trinity Mother Frances Health System introduce this year's Children's Miracle Network Miracle Child.

Micah Emory Read was a micro-preemie,  born 14 weeks early, weighing just 2 lbs. 4 oz. and 14.25" long.

He's a fighter who beat the odds against him, going through blood transfusions, oxygen support, and heart surgery. He's now a healthy 16-month-old toddler.

Micah, who benefited greatly from Tyler's only NICU, as well as physicians like Retina Specialist, Ming Lu, MD. will light the tree Thursday evening in downtown on the Square in Tyler at the Tyler Jaycees Christmas Parade!

The parade is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. on Thursday December 5, 2013.
