Supporting Children's Miracle Network Hospitals + Giveaway

Tuesday, June 23, 2015

Being a mom is the absolute best job in the world.  While it may not be the easiest, it is the most rewarding and heart fulfilling job I have ever had in my life.  My love for my children continues to grow everyday - even on the most trying of days.  But when you become a mom your worry factor grows to about a million percent.  With each bump, scrape, fever or fall you are constantly wishing away the pain of your own child, even for the most minor things.  I am extremely blessed to have two healthy children.  Some families are not so lucky and endure far worse illnesses than I can ever imagine having to watch my children go through.


That's why I am a strong supporter of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.  One in ten kids in North America is treated by Children's Miracle Network Hospitals each year.  Every day member hospitals treat 16,000 children in emergency rooms and provide surgeries for 97 children every hour.  In 2012, U.S. members hospitals provided $3.4 billion in charity care -- that's amazing!  

I want to share the story of child from my area who was received care at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health.  Riley was was born three and half months before her due date.  She must have known she had important work to do in this world and was eager to get started.  


Weighing a mere 1 pound 10 ounces at birth, Riley's future was uncertain.  Today she's living a full and healthy life, but Riley hasn't forgot the hospital that made it all possible - and even inspired her name.  To show her appreciation, Riley has shared her story at 120 Dance Marathon events, inspiring students to raise donations for her hospital.

Children's Miracle Network Hospitals funds support research, medical equipment and charitable care efforts that benefit Riley and countless other kids.

Pampers has been the the brand of diapers that we love in this house!  First with Cohen, now Lola and next with Baby Girl.  But when I heard what their plan was to help Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, it just gave us another reason to love Pampers so much more!
 


This month,Walmart and Pampers will be donating $200,000 to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.  I encourage you to visit Walmart.com/cmnh for more information and to make your own donation!
