I generally ignore 90% of the press releases that fall into my inbox. Then read/delete the rest. Every once in awhile though, I come across something share worthy.

Will’s story in particular resonated with me:
Mother Frances Hospital
Quad Congenital Amputee
Age 7 (as of 11/30/14)
Will has always defied odds, starting with an all-too-rare Hanhart syndrome diagnosis before he was born. Children with this disorder often have some, but not all, of the symptoms. Will’s diagnosis affects all four of his limbs and was born without feet and with partially developed hands.
This hardly slows him down. Though doctors told Will he would never be able to run and jump without ankles, he has since proven them wrong, defying odds once again.
CMN Hospitals fully funds the Special Needs Clinic where Will receives his care. The Clinic is the only one of its kind between Dallas and Shreveport and treats more than 500 children.
The Children’s Miracle Network helps so many! I definitely wanted to help Walmart and Pampers get the word out about this promotion.
To help get the word out, Walmart is offering a $25 Walmart gift card to one lucky FFF reader.
