Miracle Workers was the name of a reality television show on ABC that aired one season in 2006. It featured seriously ill people who were unable to afford treatment, the show would cover any medical costs, and document the results.
The New York Times said that the show might be considered exploitative, but it was also educational about modern medical interventions. Common Sense Media rated it 4/5, finding that surgical scenes and medical jargon might be unsuitable for small children, while calling it "heart-warming".
