Walmart and Pampers Team up for Children’s Miracle Network (and $25 Walmart Card Giveaway)

The Walmart gift cards and information have been provided by P&G.

I love it when companies team up to support a cause, especially when it involves the health of children. Walmart and Pampers have teamed up to donate $200,000 to Children’s Miracle Network in June 2015.

Every minute 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network hospital for treatment. One in 10 kids in North America is treated by a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital each year for ailments ranging from asthma and broken bones to more complicated and life threatening issues like birth defects and cancer. Member hospitals treat 16,000 children in emergency rooms daily and provide surgery for 97 children every hour. Member hospitals provided $3.4 billion in charity care for children in 2012, and this is why it’s so important to team up to support a charity like the Children’s Miracle Network.

Meet a Children’s Miracle Network Child.

Meet Keldon, a 13 year old from South Carolina who has Inoperable Benign Astrocytoma. Keldon is treated at the Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital thanks to Children’s Miracle Network.

2014 SC Champion-Keldon

Keldon’s Bio:

It was a moment fit for the silver screen: during the final play of a county basketball game, the ball was passed to Keldon. The world stopped as he took his shot and — score! The ball swooshed through the net and the crowd erupted with resounding applause.

Keldon’s life could be compared to a very challenging game of hoops. At 6 years old, extreme headaches and vomiting led him to the hospital, where he was quickly diagnosed with a brain tumor. This marked the beginning of 18 months of chemotherapy and the implantation of two shunts at the front of his skull. As Keldon’s treatment continued, his family sought comfort in learning about cancer and blood disorders via the hospital’s child life program funded in part by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

While Keldon’s tumor remains benign and inoperable, the aspiring NBA player’s recovery is as miraculous as the moment he made his winning shot. He is full of life and brings a smile to everyone he meets.

How can you help Children like Keldon?
