CHaD News
CHaD Gets a Christmas Visit from Wal-MartWal-Mart has a long standing relationship with the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth starting back in 2000 when one of their Associates, Sue Richardson, whose daughter, Meghan, was suffering from cystic fibrosis, encouraged her store Manager, District Manager and eventually the VP for the Northeast Region to support New Hampshire's children's hospital, CHaD. Over the past 8 years, the stores in the two states have raised over $1,900,000 for CHaD.

What a great year!!!!

Her Favorite Designer..Paulie

Hi All

Wow what a year 2207 has been. Meghan has had good health. She got to spend a week with her favorite people ..The crew from Extreme Home Makeover. I think this was her favorite point of the year.

Meghan is also a Wish Ambassador for the Make A Wish Foundation of NH. She had alot of fun being the guest speaker at many events around the state. I also became a Wish Granter for them and Meghan and I were honored to grant our first wish to a young man of Nashua what fun that was seeing the smiles.

Meghan's health is great right now. Her lung function is in the 95% range which is better than most adults. She is learning alot about her diabeties. She also got braces. Not her favorite part of last year. Our goal now is to put some weight on her.

This coming year is already getting busy. Meghan is going to West Palm Beach Veterans Day Weekend to be the Media Host for a golf tourney to raise funds for injured veterans. She is very excited about this because Paulie may be going with us and she LOVES to help veterans because her papa and uncle are Vets.

We also have a few other things up our sleeve but can't tell you right now so keep checking in.

This is Katie. She is the most outstanding Childlife Specialist ever.
We are sad to say she is leaving Dartmouth. She has made a major difference in Meghan's life. We will miss her so much. But
we are glad to say she is moving home to be closer to her family.
She will be in charge of a Pedi floor in Wisconsin. They are lucky kids to have her coming there.
WE LOVE YOU KATIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We want to thank Wal-Mart for raising a record breaking $412,ooo for CHaD. Next year they will break the $2 million mark. WOW what lives you have changed for the better.
Well we hope this finds you all well. We wish you the best in 2008.
