2021 Campaign Benefitting Children's Miracle Network

RONA and Children’s Miracle Network

    Children are the future of our communities. They need to have access to quality care across the country when their health is failing. Therefore, supporting the Canadian healthcare system is—now more than ever—crucial.

    For this reason, we are proud to be a major partner of Children’s Miracle Network for a fourth consecutive year, raising funds to support the life-saving work of 14 local children's hospitals and positively impact the health and well-being of over 2.6 million kids in Canadian communities.

          Meet Hudson

            This is Hudson, the son of Brian Pedlar, Regional Field Merchant at Lowe’s Canada.

            Doctors at the Stollery Children’s Hospital learned Hudson’s illness began with H1N1 and led to a serious staph infection which caused a severe case of pneumonia and if that wasn’t enough, Hudson also developed septic shock.

            Hudson was put on life support in the pediatric intensive care unit at the Stollery for 19 days, and on a ventilator for another six days. While he was in septic shock, his body directed all its energy to the vital organs and his extremities, like his ears, arms and legs began to swell and blacken. On December 6, 2018, Hudson’s right leg was amputated below the knee.

            Despite the long rehabilitation road ahead of him, Hudson’s spirit remains unbreakable. Now that he has received his “helper foot” that affords him endless possibilities, such as playing hockey, he continues to bravely accept and meet challenges that he is faced with.
