About Our Guild

"The Miracle House," a name coined for Seattle Children's by faithful supporter and storyteller Phil Smart, Sr., was a name given to our guild as recognition of our unique history.  

Traditionally, a guild’s core membership is a group of friends, co-workers or neighbors. Our guild was created by the Guild Association in response to a diverse group of people who expressed an interest in guild membership, but who did not have a specific link to an existing guild. Thus The Miracle House Guild was formed in 2000 which brought together a group of strangers from all over greater King and Pierce counties.

Now in our fifteenth year, we are a strong group of friends and one of the top 15 revenue-producing guilds. Our numbers have grown as friends of friends and members of our patient spotlight families have joined the guild. We all share an on-going commitment to supporting Seattle Children's and we are proud of the tradition we have created with our annual “Where Miracles Take Flight” auction.

Mason was diagnosed with brain cancer in June 2012.  His tumor is a juvenile pilocytic astrocytoma.  It’s inoperable due to the proximity of his tumor to the optic nerve and it also affects the function of his pituitary gland. Mason is very small and is under-going human growth hormone treatment in addition to chemotherapy.
