Did you know that one in 10 kids in North America is treated by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals each year? That is an astounding amount of kiddos. Every day, member hospitals treat 16,000 children in emergency rooms and every hour, member hospitals provide surgery for 97 children. I have been fortunate to have relatively healthy kids and I can’t imagine what it’s like to have a child that is always sick. Thank goodness that the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals are around to help care for them.

 

 

This June,  Walmart and Pampers are donating $200,000 to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals! That is fantastic, but we all have an opportunity to do more. The publics support helps provide 32 million patient visits for 10 million kids every year. Right now if you purchase certain P&G products at Walmart, part of their proceeds go to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. You can check here for a list of participating products.

 

2014 ME Champion-Noah

 

 

As I said before, I am lucky to have never have to use a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, nor do I know anybody who has personally. I do find comfort in knowing that these places do exist for other families, especially for fellow Mainer (pictured above) Noah’s family. Here is his story:

 

Maine – Noah

Eastern Maine Medical Center

Bacterial Meningitis

Age 10 (as of 11/30/14)

 

 

Noah’s family has learned many things, including compassion, throughout his lengthy medical journey. While shopping for a Christmas tree, Noah and his brother demonstrated their sensitivity and empathy when they spotted a lonely tree among stumps at the tree farm. Concerned this one had been picked over and left without any friends, they were determined to give it a home.

 

Although Noah sometimes wonders why he must suffer from so many symptoms potentially stemming from bacterial meningitis — asthma, an undiagnosed immune disorder, recurring pneumonia, sinus and ear infections — he realizes his opportunity to help others and does so annually.

 

Each fall, Noah’s family hosts a fundraiser for his hospital. Last year’s Dare to Scare Krazy Karnival raised $2,000. But more than anything, Noah loves the Boston Red Sox. This normally reserved boy will talk for hours about his beloved team and will confidently tell you he’ll play for them one day.

Without local CMN Hospitals donations that make possible the medical care and equipment available in Noah’s own backyard, he would have to travel nearly eight hours round trip for each appointment.

 

Do you have a Children’s Miracle Network story, that you would like to share with us? I would love to hear about your experience! Also please consider visiting Walmart.com/cmnh for more information and to make your own donation.

 

Win It: One reader will win a $25 Walmart GC.
