Walmart and Pampers are donating $200,000 to CMNH in June of 2015 #Pampers #Walmart #Giveaway @CMNHospitals

I was provided with a gift card to purchase the diapers to facilitate my review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

After the year we’ve had with Jax being sick with pneumonia four times and being in out of Urgent Cares and Hospitals trying to figure out why he’s so sick, I value and know the importance of a good children’s hospital!

Children’s hospitals specialize in just that: children! They know how to better care for them, tend to all their needs and consider things that hospitals used to dealing with older people don’t.

After spending months seeing different specialists and Doctors, I know the difference quality care can make in the life of a child and their family. It can be the difference between a completely negative experience and turning a negative situation into a positive one.

The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals aren’t any that we have visited but after reading some of these children’s stories, I can see the miracle’s they are performing in lives!

I was brought to tears many times reading the stories of these sweet children and babies! One in particular jumped out at me. I think I was initially attracted to Grace’s picture because she’s baby just like Jax so I feel that immediate connection.

2014 RI Champion-Grace (a)

Here is her story:

Rhode Island – Grace
Hasbro Children’s Hospital
Teratoma Tumor
Age 5 (as of 11/30/14)

Grace had just turned 1 when she was admitted to the hospital because of difficulty emptying her bowels. Within a week, she was diagnosed with a tumor that had been growing since she was in utero.

Having wrapped itself around the base of her spinal column, the tumor prevented the usual procedure of resection followed by chemotherapy. Instead, doctors decided to start with chemotherapy to shrink the tumor, at which point they could safely remove it. The plan worked and three months later, on Valentine’s Day, Grace underwent a successful surgery to have the tumor removed.

Her family is grateful Grace was too young to retain any memories of her medical dilemma, but the scars won’t let her forget it happened. Grace will point to them and call them her “boo boos” before heading off to play with her sisters, a big smile on her face. Her name, meaning “virtue and poise,” could not be more fitting.

Here is how CMN Hospital Funds helped:

CMN Hospitals donations helped renovate a surgical suite where Grace received surgery and are also helping update a family room where families can handle every-day activities like email and laundry.

If you want to help children like Grace, visit Walmart.com/cmnh for more information and to make a donation. This could be any one of our children and after the year I’ve had with Jax I appreciate so much more that companies like Walmart and Pampers are pitching in to help the very children that their products are sold to.

We love Pampers Swaddler’s and shop at Walmart for Jax’s baby needs so I love that these two companies are coming together in this way. The Swaddler’s literally swaddle Jax and keep him as comfortable as he can be which is especially important during his moments of sickness.
