This post is sponsored by P&G . I was provided with a Walmart gift card as a thank you for sharing the following information. All opinions are 100% my own.
Long ago I wrote about my belief in the power of prayer. Today I’d like to share more of my nephew’s story.
That video was taken over 17 years ago.
Over the course of his first three years of life my nephew underwent three separate open heart surgeries to rearrange the blood flow within his heart and allow the left ventricles to do the work for the underdeveloped right side of his heart. These surgeries offer a temporary fix, anywhere from 15-30 years.
Thanks to the doctors and the nurses at Children’s Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska, Connor turned 18 this year. He graduated high school and is starting college in the fall.
He has an amazing imagination and talent for writing. Every day he is a reminder of the miracles Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals provide.
The infographic below was created to show why it is so important to help support the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
10 million kids, kids just like yours and mine, are treated in Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) each year.
Each day 16,000 kids are treated for trauma. Over 2,300 kids, like my nephew, go in for life-saving surgeries.
The numbers are over-whelming.
And those numbers aren’t just statistics. They are children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews…kids who deserve to have a chance at life.
