Change Kids’ Health, Change the Future During Lunar New Year at Panda Express

This Friday, February 12, 2021, marks the beginning of Lunar New Year and the Year of the Ox in the Chinese zodiac. Lunar New Year celebrates the coming together of family and friends to feast and welcome the new year and is the most important festival in China.

Since 2007, Panda Express has been bringing good fortune to millions of kids treated at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals by asking for donations at the register all year long. Funds donated stay local and impact patients and families in your community.

We want to join alongside the associates and guests celebrating this Lunar New Year and take a moment to recognize the immense impact made on Children’s Hospital Foundation in 2020. More than $180,000 was raised for pediatric research, education and clinical care for Oklahoma children.

Ady was diagnosed with stage 4 high risk neuroblastoma after a swollen lymph node was found near her groin. After 5 rounds of harsh chemo, 2 stem cell transplants, and 12 sessions of radiation spanning a year, Ady finished her 5th and final round of immunotherapy around Thanksgiving of 2020. Even though she has been through so much, Ady never stops smiling and her joy is contagious. She loves playing with her brothers and spending time outside. Thanks to our partners like Panda Express, Ady is cancer free!

To bring good fortune to your family this year, visit your nearest Panda Express location to pick up a meal and celebrate Lunar New Year beginning February 12. We are grateful for the ongoing partnership with Panda and the many ways they address the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual needs of children, bringing them courage and hope to heal and thrive. #PandaCares
