Walmart and Pampers are donating $200,000 to CMNH in June of 2015. Wow, that’s amazing! What a difference we can make by buying our Pampers at Walmart.
On our recent trip we picked up a few packs, knowing that we could help be a part of such a wonderful cause.
Meet Sam. He resides in Idaho where we live and he is one story of help from Children’s Miracle Network.
Complex Underlying Connective Tissue Disorder
It would take an entire book to explain what makes Sam so unique, and the course and complexity of his illness so unusual. He doesn’t have just one diagnosis or issue; it’s a yet-unnamed disorder that affects multiple body systems without any clear connections.
Strong and tenacious, Sam has endured dozens of procedures with his trademark positive attitude. When he had to give up food and have “tummy tubes” inserted directly into his stomach and intestines, he smiled and said, “I can’t eat right now, but I’m lucky because I don’t have to taste any medicine!”
Nurses know Sam as a practical joker, whether dangling plastic spiders from the ceiling and his feeding tube, or dressing up as Darth Vader to avoid an operation. He is constantly making the most of every situation. Sam remains hopeful a cure will be found for some of the issues he’s dealing with and, at the very least, that he’ll be able to eat food without pain someday.
CMN Hospitals funds helped build and expand some outpatient clinical centers where Sam can see several specialists at one appointment each week, allowing ease of access and enhanced communication.
