Like all moms I never like to see my children sick. Just recently my little one was hospitalized and it was the worst couple of days of my life. For those parents who have kids who suffer from common childhood afflictions like asthma and broken bones, or fight bigger challenges like birth defects or cancer, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals provide comfort, treatment and hope to millions of sick kids. To show support for the organization and the one in 10 kids in North America who are treated by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals each year, Walmart and Pampers have teamed up to donate $200,000 in the month of June. Additionally, by purchasing products like Pampers Swaddlers at your local Walmart, portions of the proceeds will go to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Just take for example our own native Colorado Champion — Max
Children’s Hospital Colorado
Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis
Age 13 (as of 11/30/14)
Max knows the art of both playing a joke and delivering a punch line. He found a test audience in the caregivers at Children’s Hospital Colorado. It’s a good thing he has humor on his side, as he’s had to endure six months of chemotherapy for Langerhans cell histiocytosis — an inoperable tumor resting on his pituitary stalk.
Doctors suspected the tumor in September 2012, when Max was diagnosed with diabetes insipidus, which results from the kidneys’ inability to conserve water. Max’s tumor remains with him, and scans every three months ensure it’s not growing.
All jokes aside, Max has a lot of empathy for others and is an active fundraiser for his hospital. He recently started a soda pop tabs fundraising campaign.
Max’s favorite past time is building Legos. However, when it’s time to get outdoors, he likes to play football with his friends, back-country camp and hike, or zoom around the neighborhood on his bike.
