SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Meet kids like Gabe Gitzen during our annual Sanford Children’s Miracle Network KELOLAND Special Aug. 11 at 6:30 p.m.

Not too long ago, Gabe’s future wasn’t so certain. His parents, Sara and Joe, found themselves in a waking nightmare. Gabe, then just 3 years old, was diagnosed with cancer after a routine tonsillectomy.

The Madison family found hope in Sanford Children’s Castle of Care – home to the region’s only pediatric cancer experts and the Child Life staff who made Gabe feel like the king of the castle.
