Learn about the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

This post was sponsored by Walmart. Giveaway and compensation provided by P&G.

Have you heard of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals? You may have seen Walmart taking donations in store in the past. The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is a non-profit group that takes donations for children’s hospitals to help with research and raise awareness for children with health issues. Walmart has partnered with this organization, along with many participating brands (such as Pampers), to help raise awareness and donations. It may seem like those $1 and $2 donations that we make won’t add up, but as of today, Walmart and Pampers have partnered together and are donating $200,000 to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals!

We personally don’t have a child who is benefiting from the Children’s Miracle Network, but here in Texas, there is a little boy who will be getting the help he needs thanks to everyone’s donations! 

Will, who is 7 years old, lives in Texas and is a Quad Congenital Amputee.

Will has always defied odds, starting with an all-too-rare diagnosis before he was born.

Hanhart syndrome is an uncommon birth defect characterized by a short, incompletely developed tongue, absent or partially missing fingers or toes, malformed arms or legs and a very small jaw. The severity of these physical abnormalities varies greatly among individuals, and children with this disorder often have some, but not all, of the symptoms. Will’s diagnosis affects all four of his limbs; he was born without feet and with partially formed hands.

This hardly slows him down. Will is so expressive and engaging that others quickly forget what he lacks physically. Although doctors told him he would never be able to run and jump without ankles, he has since proven them wrong, defying odds once again.

A few things to remember when you donate to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals organization at Walmart:

  • Your support helps provide 32 million patient visits for 10 million kids every year
  • One in 10 kids in North America is treated by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals each year

  • Every hour, member hospitals provide surgery for 97 children
  • U.S. members hospitals provided $3.4 billion in charity care in 2012

    I always try to support the Children’s Miracle Network simply because they have done so much for kids. My daughter has been to our local children’s hospital several times and has the best quality of care and suppport there. They are members of CMN hospitals and I feel like it’s the least I can do.

    My family did. My niece was born way early and weighed only 1 pound 9 ounces. They were such a miracle worker with her and took care of their whole family. She is 7 years old now!
