Lung Transplant Recipient and Star Trek Fan’s Dream Comes True

The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals recently promoted Children’s Hospital Week on social media to raise awareness, and Chris Pine joined in to support the campaign.

The way the campaign works is that anyone can post a photo wearing a bandage with the name of a child who has benefited from a children’s hospital with #ChildrensHospitalsWeek hashtag. Pine is showing his support for 15 year-old Pennsylvania lung transplant recipient Luke Maeding, who happens to be a big Star Trek fan.



Pine and Luke did a photo shoot together last month, and Pine gave Luke a collection of Star Trek toys, as well as a personally signed Star Trek Beyond t-shirt with the message “you know more about Trek than I do.”
