Lake Charles – The CHRISTUS Ochsner Southwestern Louisiana Foundation is pleased to announce Cheyanna Glyenn will be joining the team as the Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Director.

As the CMN Director, Cheyanna will oversee fundraising for local children’s health initiatives, such as the Labor and Delivery Unit, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and the Kids Team Therapy program at CHRISTUS Ochsner Lake Area Hospital. She will also manage Foundation events, including the annual Dragon Boat Races, Green Hat Fun Run/ Walk/ Crawl and Charity Cook-off, and the CMN Radiothon.

“We are thrilled to have Cheyanna join the Foundation team. She brings more than 8 years of fundraising experience to the CHRISTUS Ochsner SWLA Foundation, along with a passion for wellness and philanthropy, which makes her a great asset to the Foundation and CMN,” says Kay Barnett, Executive Director of Development for the CHRISTUS Ochsner SWLA Foundation.

Originally, from Lake Charles, Glyenn attended A. M. Barbe High School and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Health Science from Northwestern State University. She has been an associate with CHRISTUS Health since 2007, and was previously the manager of the CHRISTUS Louisiana Athletic Club - Lake Charles. Cheyanna is excited about her new role and the opportunity of continuing to fulfill the CHRISTUS mission of extending the healing ministry of Jesus Christ.

CHRISTUS Ochsner St. Patrick Hospital has been a CMN hospital since 1987, and is the exclusive CMN Hospital for Southwest Louisiana. The Children’s Miracle Network serves an area from the Sabine River east to the Atchafalaya Basin and from Beauregard Parish south to the Gulf of Mexico. CMN funds are raised through the CHRISTUS Ochsner SWLA Foundation to be used to create local miracles by funding advanced pediatric equipment and wellness education programs that our children in Southwest Louisiana need for their health and well-being.
